I think that manias come in all different shapes and sizes. I can say i have had ones where i never thought about sex, and only created for all hours of the night untill i finally fell asleep exhausted. Then there are the ones where i have risky behaviors, and others where it is all about sex. Then there are the combo meal varietys. Depression mixed with energy, hopelessness mixed with eurpohic feelings. Rapid cycling, JOY JOY JOY. So many interesting and fun ways to be crazy. LOL LOL LOL
It would be nice if each and every mania was exactly the same, that way we could plan for and around them. But no, they have to be different and crazy. Sigh. Such is life.
