I should see a Doctor

Bipolar disorder causes dramatic mood swings—from overly "high" and/or irritable to sad and hopeless, and then back again, often with periods of normal mood in between. Severe changes in energy and behavior go along with these changes in mood. The periods of highs and lows are called episodes of mania and depression.Signs and symptoms of mania (or a manic episode) include:

* Increased energy, activity, and restlessness [yep, always]
* Excessively "high," overly good, euphoric mood [wiii;means yes]
* Extreme irritability [completely]
* Racing thoughts and talking very fast, jumping from one idea to another [ahá]
* Distractibility, can't concentrate well [mm, this too]
* Little sleep needed [Hu:(]
* Unrealistic beliefs in one's abilities and powers [i'm a powerpuff girl!]
* Poor judgment [Yes!]
* Spending sprees [wtf?]
* A lasting period of behavior that is different from usual [ya]
* Increased sexual drive [mmm]
* Abuse of drugs, particularly cocaine, alcohol, and sleeping medications [maybe alcohol..maybe]
* Provocative, intrusive, or aggressive behavior [sure!]
* Denial that anything is wrong [YES]

A manic episode is diagnosed if elevated mood occurs with 3 or more of the other symptoms most of the day, nearly every day, for 1 week or longer. If the mood is irritable, 4 additional symptoms must be present...
