The Ugh Feeling

Bipolar disorder causes dramatic mood swings from overly "high" and/or irritable to sad and hopeless, and then back again, often with periods of normal mood in between. Severe changes in energy and behavior go along with these changes in mood. The periods of highs and lows are called episodes of mania and depression.*

Last night was rough, although mostly fun.  I am hungover and upset today so I don't feel like writing about anything.  Hopefully I will be able to break it down a little better for you tomorrow or later this next week.
