Do you battle Bipolar Disorder?
Do you want to be in control of your life?
Bipolar Disorder feels like a battle against yourself. Am I right? Trying to control your emotions, but sometimes they get the best of you. Why let Bipolar Disorder take over your life. Believe it or not there are way to control it. It is hard to do and it takes a lot of time to do. You just have to persistent in wanted to change your lifestyle. Do you get angry a lot? Over the smallest things? That is okay, just take a deep breathe and change your train of thought. I know it is very difficult, trust me, I have done it many times, but it does in fact work. So for example; someone says something that makes you absolutely furious, so you automatically have a hard time trying to stay calm. So here's what you could do, say something in your head over and over again like I am better than that, I am strong, I will not let it bother me. Sometimes, for some people that can be very helpful because you get that stuck in your head and it starts to make it easier to stay calm in rough situations. In moments where tough times happen, just remember, you can't control what other people do, but you can control what you do. No matter how much someone gets mad at you and tries to bring you down, its up to you to not let it bother you or get you down, because you a strong human being and you have potential in life. Sometimes we feel as if the only way out may be suicide, but trust me there are other ways besides suicide. If you think no one will miss you, then I am 100% sure that you are completely wrong. I have been in the position of nearly killing myself many times and then I thought about my kids not having a mom to take care of them, and my husband crying and missing me. All my family members would miss me and would be so hurt if I killed myself. That is what made me decide to stay, even though life can be rough sometimes, you still need to bring yourself up sometimes. Your own happiness depends on you. Now say you are sad, just down right feel useless to the world. How do you change that? You cant stop crying or maybe your too depressed to get up out of the bed today? Exactly what I told you earlier, change your train of thought. Repeat something helpful, such as your favorite quote. If you do not have a favorite quote, then try to look some up online. There are plenty of good quotes. I like to tell myself, "I can;t help what others do, but I can help what I do." and somehow that makes me feel better, mostly because I feel like I am control of my life. Here's is another thing I have learned over the years. People will try to tell you that you do not need a therapist or you do not need medicine, but some people need someone to talk to. You don't necessarily need a therapist, but at least someone you trust to talk to. I choose to talk to a therapist because I do not really have anyone that I can completely trust. And, no not everyone needs medicine, but a lot of people have a hard time dealing with their Bipolar Disorder like me. I take medicine every day to control my Bipolar Disorder, because I have a lot of trouble dealing with it on my own, especially when you have kids that tend to stress you out. It is very normal to get stressed out easily. Don't let Bipolar Disorder take over your life. You wont have a life if you do that. It is no fun to live your life having uncontrollable and emotional outburst,plus if you have anxiety with it, which most people do. I personally don't want to live my life feeling as if someone else is controlling me inside of my own body. I hate battling myself everyday. I am still looking for new ways to control Bipolar Disorder myself, but it is very difficult to control anyone who has it understands. As you may or may not know, it can be difficult to keep a relationship when you are struggling with Bipolar. I have been married for 6 years as of March 5, 2019. We have has our ups and downs due to my mental illness, but we do not let that define our relationship. My husband is a strong man to take care of me and support me all the way through. You can tell he truly does love me. I couldn't do it without his support. It is always good to have at least someone to support you. He does his best to try and stay calm when I get upset. He doesn't even have to do what he does, but I sure appreciate that he does. It is difficult to deal with Bipolar alone, even though it can be done.It can also be difficult if you don't have anyone who understands. That could be why you have searched Bipolar Disorder or in the first place, or maybe your just curious about it, or wondering what all the symptoms and treatment options are. Truth be told though, most people keep Bipolar Disorder for the rest of their lives, and then some people can completely recover. I would love it if I were able to completely recover, but I do not have the answers to that. I sometimes wish I has some sort of magic to make everything better, but that is just not how the world works is it? You just live and your learn. I'm sure you have heard that many of times, but it is true. You can't live without learning, and you can't learn without living. So by going through your hard times with Bipolar, It only makes it easier to control and live your life to fullest extent possible. So please do your best to make every experience count, rather it be a good experience or a learning experience. Thanks for reading my article and I hope you achieve your goals in controlling your Bipolar Disorder.
