Hello Beyond Tired,
First, important question --- have you reported these reactions and this puzzlement, directly to your psychologist ?
What we need is often very simple, but very hard. Keep fighting those negative urges, and share the responsibility for controlling this whole situation with your shrink.
As for the "Evaluation Test" on this site, I have never seen it, and am not associated with it at all. I'm not aware of ANY test that can be self-administered in that formwat, which is reliable and deeply useful --- at best, like the quizzes in a woman's magazine, they are entertaining and can suggest possible problem areas --- ONLY a full assessment by a competent shrink / doc, can make a proper diagnosis or point towards appropriate treatment.
What you describe in that particular example, does sound potentially manic.
It's good to hear that you feel calmer around the bf ; maybe explore ways to use that greater calm to make furehr progress towards finding a source of such calm within yourself.
Drink may make it a bit easier to fall asleep, but generally decreases the quality and value of such sleep, so it is usually better to have a bit less sleep, without booze, than a bit more, with it.
Maybe, building on JM's reference site, try calling that Depression / Anxiety organization listed on our pages, and see if there's an accessible support group which might perhaps be useful for you ?
