    Im#BipolarStrong because I'm still here after 45 yrs

    It's been a series of exhausting roller coaster mood swings. I can literally go from the height of mania to depts of despair all in 24 hrs. Its more under control since w008 when a terrific doctor put me on anti epeleptic meds which do stabilise me to a degree. Any upset or extra stress sets me off again and I'm just out the other side of a relapse which started at Christmas. The thing is We Do Get through if we take one step at a time. Accepting our illness is better than denying. It brings a certain kind of peace in a weird way. It allows me to forgive myself for the times I screw up, for the days I can't even get washed or dressed. For the crazy things I sometimes do because I lose the ability to be rational.
    It's a daily challenge for all of us so the least we can do is be kind to ourselves. We are warriors against a bewildering illness, Acept you will lose the battle some of the time but remember we can win the war. One step at a time!
    Love, Light and Blessings to you all. 🙏🏼❤️

    What do your issues with trust feel like? #CheckInWithMe

    I told my boyfriend I have a hard time trusting people even my therapist. And he said why would someone who is seeking help and answers not take that help. He didn’t get it that I was hurting from that statement. It made me feel like I wasn’t trying hard enough. That’s one of the things I feel so bad about: not being able to trust others because it makes me feel like I fail at recovery. In the moment I feel like I don’t trust that I’ll get better so why should I trust anyone who hasn’t been in my position. I just want to have friends or get to know people like me so I don’t feel so alone. #BipolarStrong #LossOfAParent #MyStoryMatters #JustKeepSwimming
