Variable Label: Worst episode in past year-racing thoughts/disorg thinking


M30g

Here's the next series, which deals with racing thoughts or disorganized thinking:

One: Your thoughts did not come more quickly or seem more confused or escape you more than usual.
Two: Your thoughts came somewhat more quickly than usual, or seemed a bit more confused than usual, or you lost your train of thought somewhat more than usual.
Three: Your thoughts raced through your mind, or you easily lost your train of thought, or your mind kept jumping from one topic to another.
Four: Your thoughts jumped around so much that people had a hard time following you or you couldn't keep yourself on track in a conversation.
Five: Your thoughts were going so fast or you were so confused that it was impossible for anyone to follow you or for you to make yourself understood.

(IF NEC:Which of these five statements was most true of you during your worst episode of being very [(excited and full of energy/irritable or grouchy)] in the past 12 months?)
