religiosity and mental illness

About six months ago I experienced a manic episode for the first time. I have since been diagnosed bipolar, severe, with psychotic features. At the height of mania I believed that I had had a vision of g-d or a seraph. In my mind at the time, the thought process was that Moses and other prophets throughout history must have also been bipolar, schizophrenic, or something similar, and had seen what I had saw. I interpreted the burning bush as psychosis.

I have since come down from the mania and have lost the religiosity that had come with it. I’m still not sure what to make of the whole thing. Any thoughts?
