Is it hypomania or normalcy

So how do you guys tell the difference between hypomania and "normalcy"? An example, I am planning a trip to go by myself to Europe in the spring. Plenty of people travel alone and I have traveled alone abroad previously but it males me wonder. Also I used to be very shy and introverted. I am 25 now and this summer I made so many new friends (which is great) but I am so outgoing that some of my old friends are shocked that I am so outgoing (they dont kno about bp). I am like a new person these past weeks. Just tons of energy and having so many new people gravitate to me. Is it me coming out of my shell or hypomania?

Re: Is it hypomania or normalcy

I think your trip is exciting! Are you going out of control with spending, racing mind, risk-taking, any of the other symptoms of mania? Is the trip planned, or an impulse

If I were going on a trip like that, I'd be wound up, too, with anticipation.

Wish I were in your shoes! Have a great time!
