I have been diagnosed as bipolar II since 1989 and have been on many medications. I have more bouts of depression, suicidal thoughts, and inability to function and think than I have mania. But I am enjoying the manic phase right now. My Dr. is adjusting the Effexor and Abilify down. Find myself not wanting to take the prescribed dosage and stay manic. After losing my older brother, mother and favorite aunt this year I am finally laughing. It feels wonderful. Is it wrong to want to stay this way?
