Variable Label: Worst episode in past year-unrealistic thinking


M30h

Here's the next series, which deals with thinking about impractical or unrealistic things:

One: You didn't think or talk about anything different than usual
Two: You thought a lot about new interests or new plans that were not very practical or realistic.
Three: You thought a lot about really strange unrealistic things like hyper-religious ideas or totally unrealistic plans.
Four: You had a lot of grandiose ideas about being able to do things you can't really do, or paranoid ideas about plots or conspiracies that don't really exist, or ideas about you being at the center of things that really don't have much to do with you.
Five: Your mind was so confused that you were having delusions or hearing voices or seeing things.

(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?)
