For the past few months my psychiatrist and I have been try to find the root cause of my mania, and what triggers it. We have talked about relationships, employment and any trauma I may have experienced. Each area failed to bring up any cause for my previous year long mania.

Then it hit me today.

There I was driving back from dropping the kids off to school, I put my favourite music up loud in the car…then it hit me. I felt the euphoria starting to seep through my blood vessels and into my brain. I became foggy, but happy. My driving started to become more reckless (Speeding) and I felt invincible.

I have just arrived home and I am still in the state of euphoria, so I am going to try and get all the chores done before it wears off.
