In brief: Mania & euphoria

Euphoria is possible without being bipolar or manic, but can also appear in a bipolar person's initial stages of mania.
S/he feels confident, buoyant, ready to take on anything. Mind feels sharp & clear. Sounds pleasant, no? But then the episode intensifies into full mania, with increasing loss of judgment, restlessness, impulsivity, decreasing need for sleep, rapid speech, irritability, etc.
