When I'm manic, I'm usually mixed. I have had pure manic states though. The first thing that happens is I start spending some serious money. I start acting hypersexual and I don't sleep. Then, I start calling people in the middle of the night for no reason at all. I usually call people all day too. I want to talk, talk, talk. The really fast talking usually comes into play about then as well. That is when people around me can usually tell that something is wrong. It gets pretty bad from there if it continues. I have gone 3-4 nights with absolutely no sleep. I would go to a bar, close it down. Of course, drive home, and stay up all night cleaning, talking on the phone, or I would bring some poor guy home from the bar and keep him up all night. The city I lived in had a 24 hour crisis hotline. After I discovered that I wouldn't call friends and family in the middle of the night, I would just call them. Some of the employees there got to know my voice(confidential). I would also be very, very sure of myself and have grandiose thoughts and sometimes behavior. I once thought I was a rock star. I would stay up all night and write songs. They sucked! I even bought a $2500 guitar that I didn't know how to play. Unfortunately, the fun usually ends after I start crying uncontrollably and become suicidal.

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
