Well, what happens when you crash after that episode and you can't function and this seems to happen over and over again? You hide these times of "productivity" and "sadness" for 11 years. When you finally do get help you find out that these highs and lows are periods of mania and depression. You now know that what you have been living with is bipolar disorder...now what?
