A manic episode is not a disorder in and of itself, but rather is a part of a type of bipolar disorder.
A manic episode is characterized by period of at least 1 week where an elevated, expansive or unusually irritable mood, as well as notably persistent goal-directed activity is present.
The mood disturbance associated with manic symptoms should be observable by others (e.g., friends or relatives of the individual), and must be uncharacteristic of the individual's usual state/behavior. These feelings must be sufficiently severe to cause difficulty or impairment in occupational, social, educational, or other important functioning.
Mania: The fast ideas start coming too fast, and there are far too many... overwhelming confusion replaces clarity...
you stop keeping up with it... memory goes. Infectious humor ceases to amuse. Your friends become frightened... everything is now
against the grain... you are irritable, angry, frightened, uncontrollable, and trapped.
