Feeling like a yo-yo

Have you ever had that yo-yo feeling?  Yesterday I was a low as low can be.  Today I am the total opposite.  I feel like I'm on speed today.  I'm guessing this isn't a good thing.  Yesterday I had to do something I really wasn't looking forward to doing and I think that's why I was so low.  My husband is a recovering alcoholic and his therapist asked if I would come in and speak with him.  My anxiety about the visit was so bad I almost didn't go.  But I went because I wanted to show my husband that I will support him in any way that I can.  I came home feeling like a wet noodle.  Today I feel like I can do anything.  I just wish I could maintain a even level of feeling and not bounce around all the time.  I'm procrastinating, but I think it's time to see the Doc about a med change.

I've had that feeling on and off meds, if you're on meds and feeling like that def. go to the doc and tell them what's going on.

I haven't been diagnosed bipolar but who knows I could be.   I prob. need to go see a counselor but can't afford to have 2 people in therapy at the moment.  At this point in time I feel it's more important for the hubby to go.  I'm hoping a med. change will help for now.
