Manic Episode

Manic Episode is the term used to refer to one aspect of bipolar disorder (formerly known as manic-depression). This phase is characterized by periods of unusually high energy, a euphoric state of mind, and grandiose thought patterns about themselves and their abilities. Many artists experience this as a high-energy time where they can work for days on end without needing much sleep. Also see: Mania
