I kind of had a phase of excessive excitement in 2012-13. If you had interacted with me then, you would probably be either impressed by my energy or found me annoying. Those days are over now. I kind of miss the excitement I used to feel, but I know it's impractical.

BTW, here's the thing: it started in 2012, when I had finally gotten out of the school I studied in when I was 15, where I was bullied. I was delighted to be able to have a fresh start. And once I got out of it, I put on a "popular" facade. Of course the world I constructed for myself eventually broke down.

What you do is continue on the journey to adulthood. You're barely seventeen it would seem. You have lots of growing up to do.

You set goals for yourself, with what you want to do with your life and how you plan on getting there. They don't have to be concrete goals, they can be flexible. You should be moving forward to being able to get more schooling if that's what you want or getting trained for getting a decent job and becoming financially independent.

Then you keep reminding yourself that life is a series of up, downs and long stretches of simply flat. There will be good times, bad times and boring times. You try to stack your goals and behavior in life toward maximizing the good times.

This was my first sentiment on the topic having knowledge of the disorder.

People with this disorder are described as often functioning in excessive highs (10s) or excessive lows (1s) and cannot feel comfortable or function for very long in the middle (6s and 7s). Whereas most people function in the ranges of 6s and 7s. Manic-depressives put all their energy into something and get a great high so when it disappears (that job streak, that girlfriend, that streak of whatever it was) they are so disappointed, they plummet to an excessive low.

All of this can be controlled with a mood stablizer, but that just puts the person into the 6 and 7 range and all too often they miss those highs, forgetting they end up in excessive lows and go off their medication.
