A couple years ago, due to symptoms I described to my doctor, he added a diagnosis of Bipolar II (hypomania, which is characterized by fluctuations from depression to "just above" normal - not manic episodes as in Bipolar I). My particular type of Bipolar II is called ultra rapid cycling (ultradian), which means there can be several significant mood swings in a single day.
