just a random thought. do people with bi-polar disorder smile when they are on their own and going through a manic episode? or is the joy/euphoria/etc just in their head, and only physically expressed and visible in front of people?

what do you mean exactly?

for me when i'm hypomanic i do silly things when out and i'll be very smiley and since i would have so many thoughts on my mind i end up laughing to myself (but outloud) at random things. thats sounds crazier than i am..

so with bipolar people who are manic you can sometimes see it in their physical expressions - they would be smiling more, laughing, more enthusiastic and always seeming excited. is that what you need to know?

kinda. i was just thinking about it in terms of how expressionless i myself am when i'm in my room alone, but how mellowdramatic i am in front of people. i havent been diagnosed with it, but i was rather hyperactive mentally last night, and i tend to be rather curious. lol.
thanks for your response though :)
