Hypomania does have its positive aspects; it can be quite fun as the world is so alive, and I definitely would miss it. It can also be quite tiring and heavy on the wallet (addictive behaviours are common in bipolar disorder).

I realise it's different for everyone, but I am, in some way, enjoying my current elevated mood. Particularly on my daily walks in the woods, by the farms or by the river* -- everything seems enhanced. I must look like a right idiot staring intently at either the hills in the distance or looking up a tree with a bird on it or smiling at a cute calf on a farm just wandering around or water rushing over some small rapids and that oh-so-satisfying sound, with a big grin on my face.
Oh well. I'm waiting til they open up the windfarm again under lesser COVID restrictions and I can stand under one of the turbines and look up, watch, and listen to that "whoosh". I realise you may think I need to be committed, but (some) sounds and movements calm me; particularly repetitive ones. Don't call the medics in white coats yet.
But as you write Heavenlyannie, other parts of it are definitely troublesome. And need to be monitored.
