It's complicated: The short answer is yes, it feels good for people with bipolar to be manic, especially after being depressed. But mania is very destructive and can be devastating to the most meaningful aspects of a persons life. It is often a challenge for people with bipolar to believe that genuine happiness is truly better than mania, but it is. If they stick with treatment they will get it.
