At least a week in a month. Probably more.

I rarely feel pure joy.
Not unless I’m feeling Manic.
Haven’t been Manic since upping the Depakote.

I often feel a little happiness but it is shallow. I never feel joy or high emotions. It’s like that since I take the antipsychotic.

Is being a peace considered happy? I’m not in as deep of a depression as I used to be, but I am better than I’ve been in the past. But I’m not always happy, not even always happy throughout a whole day. I can have strong mood-swings. One minute fine the next I’m very irritable and sometimes depressed. Sometimes the levels of depression varies as well.

Never a whole day at a time. Probably as much as a half hour or 20 minutes a day. That would be a pretty decent day.

It’s weird I feel both happy and extremely frustrated most of the time. I am not recovering as fast as I like and am struggling with work. But I go out and buy tea and bask in the sun and read an hour and talk and I’m quite happy too. It’s like material joy vs. long term worry…

I’m happy at least a full week maybe more. It has been a good year so far.

I don’t know that I’m necessarily actually happy, but I’m not really unhappy most of the time.

I was happy for awhile today. It’s fleeting. There’s no such thing as a lasting/long-term happiness for me. I feel happy about something specific and then I think of things that draw me back into neutral or lower…
Today, I got my hair cut. I’ve had long hair for years now and I wanted it short again. I felt happy about how nice and light and healthy it feels. When my husband got home he complimented and was super sweet…and then I thought of what he saw when he looks at me. I thought of how old and overweight I am, and I was suddenly miserable. I just told my husband that he’s sweet and walked away…

I am a sea of irritability with islands of happiness. There are occasional visits to the continents of contentment, but I am, unfortunately, a sailor.

I guess everyone is generally happy… A few only do not feel happiness/pleasure

Mine seems to fluctuate but days I sleep early - I wake up much happier

Feel happy about 80%-90% of the time, been this way for about a year and a half
