Oh yes, I can definitely relate. I've been rapid cycling (bipolar 1) for over a year now. I assume you're talking about hypomanic episodes here, and I doubt you could find one person who doesn't enjoy them, especially someone creative like yourself. But when you get full blown mania, psychotic, strapped down and in a psych ward, that's a whole different story. The positive for you is I think there's only a 5% switchover from bipolar 2 to bipolar 1, I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong. I've had hypomanic episodes that evolve within a few days to mania since I was a teen. But I do understand your hesitancy to take meds- they're awful. How are your depressions, have you been suicidal? I guess it all depends on how bad your condition is, but there are a lot of people with mild conditions who learn to handle them w/o meds. Unfortunately I'm not one of them. Good luck.
