What does bipolar mania feel like? Is it always happy?

Hi, Struggling bouncing between moods. I'm currently in the all over the place, mind doesn't understand the difference between $1 or $100, I forget stuff because my brain is processing so many things so quickly type of mood. I'm not particularly "happy", but I'm not sad. I don't want to be around more people. I'm just not depressed or thinking about dying or how bad things are. But I'm not like "Infinitely Bipolar" mania or "Wolf of Wall Street" living it up (of course fiction movies have to sell it, but I digress).

So my question is what does mania or hypomania feel like for you?

Ftr, I have a first visit with a psychiatrist in two weeks. A little nervous...
