Keep in mind, you don't have to be quote "mentally ill" to go through holiday blues once they are over, and rapid mood swings may come along with that. We put such high hopes on enjoying the season, and when it is over, like a flash, we are very down.We do this year after year, and so, by now we expect it. Let's try to change the swing looking forward to another day we can call special for our own. A get together with friends, long term goals. anything you want as long as it is toward the future, and not depresses about the past. Please arm yourself to ease your selves through this especially hard and stressful holiday,2008.

I'm bi-polar and I have rapid mood swings all year, almost daily. The Holidays contribute, but I really notice no differance.
