Hi SLS!

[... mania ...]

The aftermath of a psychotic mania includes embarrassment, being forever remembered as a mentally imbalanced and potentially dangerous mental patient, being ostracized and abandoned by almost everyone, self-inflicted poverty, the loss of respect by friends who become the target of personal insults and rage, etc. Years of depression really doesn't do this - with the exception of poverty.

I almost killed myself and ended up in intensive care. I nearly destroyed my kidneys probably from rhabdomyolysis. On other occasions I ended up in the mental hospital. So, I'm not saying mania is worth it.

Only my first, and most intense, episode had a happy ending, other than coming to an end and a descent back into depression.

If I am saying something, it is that classic, euphoric mania is better than mixed or dysphoric mania, if only because it feels better -- but that alone may keep you from attempting suicide.
