In brief: Mixed Bipolar state
Bipolar mood disorder-bmd- has two extreme mood poles: depressed low sad and so forth versus "manic" - too high, excess activity, energy, sexual activity (sometimes more reckless than normal).
When a person has a mixed episode, believe it or not that have both at the same time: low, depressed, helpless plus wired, too high, frantic, over energized, a painful combination. Treatment needs given.
