This is the less severe mania in a Bipolar Disorder’s spectrum of moods. Hypomanic episodes have the same symptoms of manic episodes but not so extreme as to cause impairment.



  • High-pitched voice
    My voice gets so irritatingly high-pitched, even I cannot stand it at times and I don’t understand half of what I am saying.
  • Non-stop singing or talking
    Sometimes this gets annoying because I don’t even like my own voice.
  • Converse with anyone
    I would talk to everyone – people, strangers, animals and things.
  • Restlessness
    I can go on and on about anything and nothing.
  • Unable to sit still
    I can’t sit and behave in one corner.
  • Easily distracted
    I am everywhere!
  • Many new ideas and plans
    I can physically feel my brain working and I get so many brilliant ideas.
  • Doing multiple projects or tasks
    I say yes to everything… with no way of finishing them!
  • Creative mind
    Sometimes I have genius moments.
