Bipolar disorder is characterized by erratic shifts between high energy (manic) states and low energy (depressive) states. When people are manic, their energy levels go over the roof, making them seem extra-perky and enthusiastic.
You would think that this is a good thing, but it isn’t. The energy that manic patients feel when on “highs” only keeps on increasing, thanks to their brains’ inability to regulate properly. What initially felt like pep now begins to feel like panic, rendering them immobile and unable to function.
