Oh, yes!!!  Isn't it just wonderful and such a blessing.  I never thought that I would feel that way again.  My pdoc got my meds right and wham!!!  Of course, I have been pregnant for two years now (I have a 13 month old and one to be born any time) so I haven't been that stable for a while but before my pregnancies, I was stable for a long time.  I had bad days now and then but was even for the most part and it was wonderful.  I would go weeks at a time just even and happy about it.  I can't wait to feel that way again.

Enjoy!!  It is a blessing.

I had a period of remarkable stability from about October through April.  I've written before that I felt happier than I had since early childhood.  I could've been hypomanic, I'm not really sure.  I was not, not, not depressed though.   More forgiving of myself, more interested in life, more confident and sociable, etc.  And it was such a blessing.  I hope I will be there again.

Something I've learned is to enjoy that time, yes, and next time I will be more cautious about overextending myself when I'm finally feeling like myself again.  I have pulled myself in too many directions for so many years, that I thought that was normal and I needed to get back to business since I was feeling better.  I will write more in a separate post, but just wanted to chime in a little here. 

I'm glad you're feeling well - enjoy it and live in the moment.  Hard for me to do as I get so excited about feeling well and what all I can now do.  Good if you can pull it off though, and more likely to last I think.
