Hmm.. i am on meds and I am switching up and down so i can be quite hyper and my pdoc said i was talking too fast... :LOL:
but then i can be depressed too
if i was on an antidepressant that didn't make me suicidal i;d probably be intolerably happy!

   It sounds like  you arn't hyper so much as you are hypomanic.  I live in a hypomanic world and enjoy it greatly. However i have my meds adjusted so i am on the razors edge of control. Yea sometimes i stray over the edge but i am in tune with my body enough to know when and take extra meds to keep it under control.

   But hypomanias are so much fun, i'm going to enjoy them  as long as i can.

I envy you guys, with the meds I take I am always low key and kinda depressive.

If I take antidepressants, I giggling incessantly. Make me too high.

So I guess for me, slightly depressive seems to be the remedy for me.

I would be intolerably happy too on antidepressants.

Enjoy your hypomanias.

I go back and forth between anti-social and normal social, and hypomanic. Usually, I don;t like to be around people, hate going out shopping because of the crowds and the people, and always feel like people are looking or commenting about me. The meds help some with this, enough that I can go out and run errands, without feeling to afraid about other people, but it;'s rare that I talk to people. I force myself to have small talk with the cashier though.

As for gettign manic on the meds, or at least, hypomanic, yes, i do have my up days when I get alot of stuff done, and those are my good days, usually when the weather is nice out and nothing bad has happened that day. I just feel good, and energetic and not anxious about stuff even though I still have to wind myself up to go out.
