Wound up tight- mania.

Lately I have been having bouts of mania. I'm wound so tightly, and getting unwound is difficult. It's really exhausting because it feels as if I can climb Mt. Everest, and still have stamina saved up for a cardio workout! Everything seems urgent, and I have to remind myself that every item on my to list is not actually urgent. Now that I think about it, when I'm manic my to do list IS never-ending. When mania sets in I'm cranky, revved up, a perfectionist, not easily satisfied, feel disconnected from people, and plain out uncomfortable! Sleeping is hard, and falling asleep takes tremendous effort (or medicine). I will dedicate the next few days to exercise, sleep, and relaxation in an effort to find a balance. Does anyone else experience these trials when manic? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
