    I usually wallow in my own misery for many weeks but when euphoria hits me it's just magical and the world is mine. I was once diagnosed with bipolar but never went back. I disagree with the diagnosis but I think I might have some mild form and depression or something. BUT I don't want to get treatment because euphoria just makes up for the weeks of mystery. And what if it disappears if I get treatment? Anyone feel the same way? IS there a way to get rid off depressing moods WITHOUT getting rid off euphoria? I don't want things to just stay balanced all the time because it feels too damn good even if it makes me a bit impulsive.

    Hi there!

    As a fellow Bipolar sufferer, I feel like I have to comment.
    What you're doing can be very dangerous, although I completely understand! Please seek treatment, in mild forms the highs feel like a great little pick me up and the lows aren't too bad. But if you actually have full blown episode you will be putting yourself and possibly others at serious risk of harm.

    Mania may seem like an n "only good" thing but it really affects your judgement, I remember stepping out in front of a car because I felt like I would easily win, why wouldn't I, I was unstoppable!

    Please seek treatment, and don't stop it because "you feel fine"

    Good luck, If you ever need to chat, Feel free to PM me, Bipolar can be awfully lonely!

    Hi, thank you for taking your time to reply. I don't think I've ever had a severe 'manic episode' though so not too worried about that. Do you still experience highs/euphoria while on medication?

    Even though you may not have had one the chances are you will experience one eventually, I really do recommend going to see someone regarding medication, it does honestly help!

    The idea for most medication options are to plateau out your moods, so you will loose the minor highs, but for your safety it should be no question.
