This is a question I have been thinking about the past few days. I have been feeling so much better these days, after so many months of depression, that it is like I am a child looking at the world with wonder for the first time. I have been feeling so different lately - more creative, more talkative, more optimistic, when I used to be the opposite - that I am sort of scared, you know. Now I wonder: am I creative, talkative and optimistic by nature? Is this just the effect of the anti-depressant I am taking? Has anyone with bipolar ever felt this way?
