Manic Madness

I am struggling with relationships and hyper-sexuality and not sleeping while manic. Looking for those who can relate and share how they cope.

Self Care

What can I add to my routine besides therapy and meds? #CheckInWithMe #PTSD #BipolarDisorder #BorderlinePersonalityDisorder I want to get into a routine. Keep my anxiety and emotions under control. I have DBT therapy and it has been really helpful but meds don’t fix everything. All three of the disorders trigger each other somehow. I feel like I’m slipping into a depressed episode, I have intense anxiety and my BPD gets in the way. I’m looking for stability.

how do you deal with hopelessness during a depressive episode?

after being manic for a few months... and without any break in between, I got really depressed. it's been one of the worst I've had, I can barely do anything, I am starting to contemplate suicide maybe a bit too seriously...
anyway, one of the main things I'm struggling with is thinking about the near future, I'm about you graduate college and a wanted to get a master's degree... but now I somehow don't want to or don't care, I could get a job, I could do things, get out, probably move out of my parents house, work on my small business...
but none of that seems neither important or posible, since I don't feel competent enough to try any of that,

and is not that I don't think I can get a job (as an example) but all the things around it sound way too hard ... getting up everyday, eating, dressing up ...

I just feel hopeless about everything, nothing in life seems to interest me at all.
I'm starting therapy again soon, but I haven't been able to see my psychiatrist. I want to because I think I really need a dose adjustment..
thanks for reading, and I would love to hear from you guys, #BipolarDisorder #BipolarDepression #Depression
