The mood spectrum runs from psychotic depression to psychotic mania and the varying degrees of depression and mania on that spectrum. In the manic phase, the individual has an abnormal elevated arousal state. As such, they could be feeling euphoric, hyperactive, energetic, or irritable. They could also have frenzied speech, delusions, and a decreased need for sleep. Depressive phases manifest in form of deep sadness, low mood, despair, and lethargy. Sufferers feel ashamed, hopeless, worthless, and unlovable. They sleep during the day and experience insomnia at night.
