Every since I was diagnosed it’s like I’ve lost my friends and I’m isolating. I only have connection with my boyfriend. I don’t know what I would do to without him. Just hit me like I have no real friends. I want to be more social but these meds I feel have changed my personality. Anyone else find themselves isolating with BD? Have you gotten out of it?
I have. You can always message me. I'm here. Sometimes I feel annoying but most of the time I think that's all in my head. I'm sure sometimes I am but I think it might be way more than it feels.
I understand completely. It's been almost 2 years since my diagnosis and at times I still find myself isolating from everyone. I really wish I could find a way not to sometimes.
Being diagnosed with bipolar disorder did not cause your so called “friends “ to go away. It’s your current distortion view associated with this disease that needs to change. Suggest you limit who you tell because most don’t understand!
this is not a helpful response
i find it helpful 🤷♀️ everyone is different, if you don't agree say why or keep scrolling
I've been a loner ever since i got bipolar not since i was diagnosed... I think it's because even when I'm "stable" I'm borderline depressed (i call it hypodepression 😂). People tire me. But at the same time i feel lonely. If you wanna chat feel free to shoot me a message.
Ever since I was diagnosed I find myself trying to help others understand me but they never seem to. My gf is the only one that truly understands and knows me. And even tho we are horrible together, I find myself constantly trying to hold onto her because who else will understand me like she does? I just want to be understood and not judged.
I totally feel you. My boyfriend doesn’t treat me any different and I feel normal with him
I feel as if I have no real friends either. I don't think I isolate myself 🤔 I suppose it's possible. I know that a lot of people can't handle me and I'm a bit much for most of them. It's not that I do this on purpose, it just seems to be what happens.
