My mom is bipolar and it changes on a whim. She can go from cheery to super-wrath-b*tch in zero seconds flat.

My teenager is bipolar and can be manic for a few days up to about a week. then will be various levels of depressed for a few weeks. Those manic days are no fun for anyone. Talk about bouncing off the walls. Meds have helped some but don't take it away. Basically the meds turn the Rocky Mountains into the Appalachians; smaller but still there.
