My sister was diagnosed with it a few years ago. It is just what it says. There are EXTREME mood swings, and I have seen it with my own eyes. For 2 or 3 weeks at a time she will be on the phone with friends in almost a hysterical kind of high, having fun hanging out with friends etc. Sometimes she is so amped up that she can barely connect a sentence. She will go days without sleeping. Then for a few weeks all she will do is
eat and sleep for 12 hours at a time. It goes on like this month after month. It is a very real illness. Meds have helped balance things out quite a bit and have given her her life back.
