There are times when I am so thankful for those manic days, because of course I can get so much done and it feels good to feel good. I don't like however, spending the money and deeply regretting it, talking and thinking so fast that it completely wears me out! I usually feel very very tired from a) sleeping less and b) everything is just so fast and high it's exhausting.
My last episode of depression lasting 5 months, I would have given anything for mania. But since cycling lately (which also makes me tired) I just want to be stable, of course.
