In brief: Bipolar Alert
Mood swings from high to low - less often in the middle.
Racing thoughts, poor sleep or diminished sleep need, impulsiveness (spending money, sexual indiscretions, driving fast or reckless), silly/giddy/euphoria, hyperactive - unable to slow down, irritability and grandiose expectations. Feeling so good or hyperactive that others have asked, "are you on something? Can't you slow down?".

Then at other times being depressed. Mood swings with episodes of hypomania followed by episodes of depression. Such swings can by cyclical & at times even predictable. Subjects to not realize & lack insight that the mood swings are related to bipolar disease. They can accept it during "normal" periods between mood swings, but promptly forget as soon as next mood swing occurs.

Happy, sad, violent, calm. Tend to abuse substances.
A neuvo term for "manic depressive" which speaks for itself. Psychiatrists have a big armmentariun of drugs for these conditions, which may be an excuse for poor adaptation.
