    Her behavior does sound weird, but I have heard of very similar kinds of behavior -- by people with bipolar disorder.

    I've lost my faith in nihilism

      It sure has that manic feel to me too.  

      Excessive happiness, hopefulness, and excitement
      Sudden changes from being joyful to being irritable, angry, and hostile
      Restlessness, increased energy, and less need for sleep
      Rapid talk, talkativeness
      Distractibility
      Racing thoughts
      High sex drive
      Tendency to make grand and unattainable plans
      Tendency to show poor judgment, such as impulsively deciding to quit a job
      Inflated self-esteem or grandiosity -- unrealistic beliefs in one's ability, intelligence, and powers; may be delusional
      Increased reckless behaviors (such as lavish spending sprees, impulsive sexual indiscretions, abuse of alcohol or drugs, or ill-advised business decisions)
      Some people with bipolar disorder become psychotic, hearing things that aren't there. They may hold onto false beliefs, and cannot be swayed from them. In some instances, they see themselves as having superhuman skills and powers -- even consider themselves to be god-like.
