Any excessive swing in mood is troublesome and has psychiatric label of bipolar mood disorder. Though initially it was labelled as schizoaffective, later I could resolve my diagnosis to be bipolar mood disorder. I have experienced sustained low and high moods. No doubt mood is a very mysterious entity not less than soul or supreme soul. I have jokingly given it full form of MIND ON OFF DEVICE. For last 8 months I was in a low phase and not wanting to take drugs, was trying psychotherapy. I am a medical Professor and diabetic and MI case on medication. And lo it worked and am feeling high for few weeks. The cause of lift of mood I can not attribute except that I was trying to do self help psychotherapy and being a writer, was writing also accordingly.

Finally I conclude by stating as an experienced patient of depression and mania plus hypomania that there is an error in cognitive apparatus of people like us which can be rectified to fairly good extent if not completely renovated.
