    I've had this diagnosis for 20 years and I very rarely see them coming. My husband tells me when he sees it

    I've only been diagnosed for a year or 2 but ive started to notice that I get really confident and extremely happy/energized. Its still helpful for me when someone points it out to me but ya its super hard to recognize sometimes.

    For me, it's how fast I speak, and how long I speak like that. Normally I'm a very quiet person, but I tend to talk alot in hypomania.
