Our expert says:
Sounds like a good account of mania / hypomania ; one gets increasingly active and decreasingly productive.
What you describe at the dentist's, though, sounds thoroughly unprofessional and worthy of reporting to the Health Professions Council. Too often, taking advantage of the fact that people are in pain and scared of dentists, they push one to whatever treatment is most convenient and profitable to them, rather than what may be in your own best interests. But of course you need to wait until you are otherwise well before taking any such action.
Whether the mania has switched to depression, or merely more appropriate sadness and frustration, may not be entirely clear.
