> Thanks for your answers but I should have been more clear--really wondering what the difference is b/t BP II ups and downs. I am pretty sure I am atypical but my mood reactivity is not always easily linked to external factors. . . . .

My bipolar highs don't tend to "happen" as the direct result of a specific circumstance. I can just get up one day and feel enthusiastic, ready to take on several projects, feel like calling people,etc. Positive events WILL *accelerate* the high, but something negative can occur and it doesn't make much of a dent in my mood. I've had situations where it *shifted* my mood from euphoria to hostility. But, that is relatively uncommon-it seems that whatever "state" I am in tends to be self-propagating for a reasonable duration. When I get depressed it works the same way, except bad news tends to make the depression much more miserable. Good news doesn't seem to make a dent (at least not for very long-a few hours).
