    Default Mania

    Manic phases kind of feel like Pac-Man to me.

    I went almost 48 hours without sleep and still didn't really feel tired. I managed to get some, though!

    That's all. Thanks for reading.

    lol. that's cool!


    Sometimes I have subtle mania which makes me feel like a huge tree on a very windy day, moved by uncompromising force.
    Mostly it feels like I cannot contain it yet I can't express it, and like a moth trapped in a glass jar, fluttering out of breath.

    Whoa...that sounds like my day-to-day life. Maybe I'm just in a perpetual state of mania.

    I gotta admit I got pretty stressed out a few times in that video. He was SO CLOSE to getting eaten!

    I can relate to the pac-man thing, when I feel hypo-manic I feel there's no limit and no ground beneath my feet, like nothing concrete can fulfill the insane drive that is so hard to satiate. Does that even make sense?

    I was somewhat nagging one of my (pretty obvious ENTP) students about his perpetual excitement and his inability to sleep.

    And then this happened to me and I now understand better how he thinks. Interesting how that works.

    Yup. I'd say that it's pretty much feeling the need to continually burn off our energy. The problem, I think, is that we don't have as much energy to burn as we think we do when we're in this state.

    Hmmm... ok so let me attempt to describe.

    For me it's like a hundred voices shouting contradictory instructions and suggestions in my mind, hysterical laughter, adrenaline, a multitude of directions...pathways. Often confusion. Sometimes a single thought will take over but usually i am acting on many thoughts simultaneously. It can get very loud and can be dangerous but the danger is thrilling.

    Hahaha...I guess that's an ENTP thing, then. I kind of just thought I was a freak of nature.

    I've always wondered what this felt like. Thanks for sharing.
