It is a severe form of mania; most often diagnosed by a psychologist or psychiatrist. It falls into the "major depressive" category like bipolar disease but rarely if ever is there a low. The symptoms under which my diagnosis was determined were An overwhelming feeling of happiness or elation without cause, very active while needing little sleep, hard to fall asleep due to the mind working overtime while it should be at rest, lack of coping skills or just not coping at all with anything that would upset the patient, sporadic behavior i.e. taking off on an unplanned road trip to see a sunrise 1100 miles away because it sounded like a good idea, shopping sprees etc. There are therapists that will advise medication if the condition is severe, but most often no medication is needed. Personally, I have not needed them because I see the long term consequences of my actions, but many others do not. The questionable behavior has most often been cause for concern because others find it irrational.
