Be careful what you wish for. While I can't speak for everyone, my experience is that mania is the worst possible condition a human can experience (perhaps with the exception of akathisia). Even though I'm not completely well yet, I count myself lucky to be alive after that experience.
Perhaps I was never depressed enough, but the episodes of depression that I had simply didn't compare to that experience at all.
