Talked to a therapist yesterday. She asked about mania and how long it had been since my last episode. I told her I don't have them often and I didn't remember when the last one was because it had been awhile. Today, woke up and cleaned the house for 7 hours straight. I feel invincible. Mania feels GOOD and I LIKE IT after being so deeply depressed for so long recently, plus it was amazing to get so much done. Basically, Hello I Feel Good

      I thought I was the only one that missed them manic episodes of feeling great, cleaning like crazy and getting stuff done. I just didn't care for not able to sleep that night and then crash for 3 days. Don't get them as much since they put me on Lamictal and Lexapro

      hey ! when i have a mania i literally get SO much done. it's ridiculous. haven't been able to text my therapist back, or call my psychiatrist in like 3 months. started lamotrogine and increased my zoloft and basically went a little bit crazy. finally messaged my therapist today !🤟 but due to mania i have also done some crazy crazy stuff. so thankful for my natural pain med.🍃

      ive never had mania and thc at the same time, so it was exciting to try ::] i also got to be in the rain. ive mostly not done anything crazy... but i guess "started a business and spent $3000 on it" is a bit much it's always great when i get a mood swing high and can do things, but the mania do things is almost too much. one time i spent... 22?? hours straight? cleaning my house including hands and knees scrubbing the floor with a brush. (i got paid like $300 for it and this was before i graduated high school so... worth??). another time i watched 50 episodes of an anime i had decided to watch in 2 days. i took breaks only to eat and briefly sleep

      Sometimes I really miss my manic episodes, they’re not as frequent as they used to be and it just feels amazing to be able to stay productive the whole day and actually feel GOOD

      Makes me feel like I'm the only one who gets really when I'm in hypo mania... I kinda like it because I'm happy. But I'm scared for my BF

      Honestly there are some times where I didn’t even realize I was manic until after the fact. And trying to label my previous episodes got difficult over time. Was I manic when I was drinking more heavily? Or was that depression? Who knows. (I’m a college student. I promise my drinking isn’t entirely a problem, but mostly a coping mechanism for intense coursework and stress) I’ve been a lot more stable since I’ve been on lamictal, and it’s been about three years now. Sometimes I miss my mania because I feel so unproductive these days. But my mania usually ended in a horrible crash, and towards the end of the episode I found myself irritable and making much more risky and stupid decisions. It had it’s positives and sometimes it felt like a superpower. But it also ended in a horrible crash, and I would fall into a horrible depression. For that reason I don’t miss it. I’m happy to be baseline and struggle with productivity and other things like normal people do. But that’s just my experience 🤗

        @taconado yup it seems like i did mine backwards - started with the worst depression ive had in years and ended the cycle with mania... i did have a crash but it was just me being tired from all the cleaning i did while manic. i used to take lamictal but it stopped working for me after awhile and all i was getting was nasty withdrawal symptoms any time i forgot to take it, so i stopped
