Am I going manic or just experiencing normal happiness?

So I am really more schizoaffective bipolar than the bipolar 1 diagnosis I have for years but I think you guys will be helpful. I have been on new meds and doing really well (just a few minor ups and downs) for the past 8 months or so. Recently I got back in touch with some old friends I lost contact with during a bad psychotic episode years ago. We have been reconnecting and chatting and everyone has been super forgiving and understanding of me. I also starting to form new friendships with people I have known since I started doing better.

Everything seems really great, but there is defiantly a surge of energy in me and my behavior is somewhat changing. I am not putting myself in any bad situations, even being covid safe (super Florida being a hot spot). Is this just normal good stuff or do you think in a few weeks I will be off the rails? I should be better able to read myself but I just cannot, to much about me has changed on the new meds. I want this to just be a good thing, please let it be.

That. Sounds like happiness to me. Being happy is a great thing and no need to deconstruct it.
