Question Gray areas

I was just wondering if anyone else here ever experiences "gray" periods in between feeling high and low, similar to a baseline mood, except that you don't feel anything at all, not good or bad or okay, but nothing.

It could just be part of the depressive phase for me, I am not sure. It's just frightening in that I just feel so detached and numb, like the world isn't real, if that makes sense.

So does anyone else ever feel that way between phases, or is it just me?

I feel like that, and I hate it. I'm so apathetic and confused of how exactly I'm feeling. Nothing phases me, and I feel disociated. You're not alone.

I usually just have that baseline mood. It's less dissociative. I can't really describe how I feel in times like this. I'm neither happy, nor sad. Not depressed or manic or anything, I just feel normal.

But I do have times where I feel like that as well, the numbness.


And I'm sorry I didn't build your walls. And I'm sorry I had to go and fall.
And I'm sorry I had the whole thing wrong. Well, I guess I'm the sorriest of all.
And I'm sorry that you are feeling small. And I'm sorry that I'm not used to crawling.
And I'm sorry the writing's on the wall. Well, I guess I'm the sorriest of all.

Though I would not wish this on anyone, it is good to know I am not totally alone in feeling this way

I get that too. Sometimes you feel like your head is just full of hateful fuzz but it's too lazy to do anything. You feel like your brain is shutting down but unfortunately you're still awake. when this happens, I write, watch movies, listen to music, or splat paint on my walls. Well... I kinda do that all the time but w/e

I'll help you. At least I'll try as hard as I can. All good intentions for all of you Play nice and respect each other.

I get that too, except it's a different color for me. When I'm manic, my mental color is blue. When I'm depressed, It's grey. When I'm in that in-between area, it's white.

That's interesting that you picked the same general colors to represent your moods, because I use those three as well. Only for me, white is manic, blue is depressive, and gray is well, in between like i described

Hmm. This is interesting. Multiple people classify their phases as colours? Strange. I just dismissed it because I have synaesthesia, so it's typical for me to see them as colours. For me, mania is red, depression is black, and the in between is white or an ivory/cream.

I have the same thing here, I feel that normal or just "blah" is grey or transparent, happy is like a green and sad is a red

Perhaps classifying phases as colors is a way for us to relate something hectic and unstable to something concrete and familiar

Sometimes I disagree with just picking three colors to describe my mood stages because at least for me there are more than just three although some mean the same thing in a slightly different way.
