What was the best advice that helped you handling your bipolar illness?

I mean things that were tried and true. There are no two alike patients and the illness may affect different temperaments differently. But I have a feeling that all advice that is "too general and generic" is not effective either. If you have depression and you an introvert, staying at home may be painful, but not as devastating than for those of us who need others to get the energy going. It's a vicious circle.
