When my mood brightened and energy surged yesterday, I felt a flash of suspicion. Even if it’s fleeting, it makes me sad that I get suspicious of good moods. But always makes trouble in the end, and, well, it ends, along with the good mood and the energy.

It is hypomania. I slept poorly last night, yet at bedtime, I feel like running 5 miles. (And wiped down the bathroom while brushing my teeth.)

I’m keeping things mellow, to make the inevitable crash softer.

@compostablespork It’s huge! Becoming aware of what’s what and learning to work within its parameters without letting it run rampant is as much a help as medication.
