The first really distinct "manic" episode I remember was two summers ago, about this time, and I felt like I was really deeply in love--except that there was no one around to be in love with, so I knew it wasn't that. And I'm kind of having that feeling again, except... really, really caffeinated. And a bit less pleasant. And loud or sudden noises are really upsetting. Shit.
ETA: Okay, a little calmer now. Good.
ETA: Yeah, I've talked to my doctor. That's what the medication adjustment I mentioned the other day is supposed to help.
