Perhaps, you have even accepted that it's there to stay with you...? I think that acceptance of a mental illness is at times the best option to do, as it at least allows you to enter the 'learning' phase (as i've just called it now for some reason!). By all means, use your great energy to good effect when it comes, but when those low moments come, learn to take a breather and do whatever is necessary to get through it. For example, take it easy - in general - and put on some good music. If you don't wanna shave, then don't shave. If you do'nt wanna shower, then don't either. The mood will lift, as it always has.
I use my energy to come here to reply to posts. Others resort to art, while others again go to the gym. Figure out what is best for you. If you can manage this illness that has manifested itself in you, I believe that you can be a great individual and be quite creative.
