      I recommend finding people who can help you realize when you're moods are swinging since it's kind of hard to tell sometimes when you're on your way to crash or go up. They can also help remind you of coping mechanisms to use whenever you notice the switch! Such as comforting things when you start to go down and healthy distractions and safe spaces when you're manic

      Ive been diagnosed with bipolar for over 20 yrs. I have stories of struggle and suffering as well as stories of success and joy. My whole life has been effected by my bipolar disorder, but it's also given me the opportunity to really get to know myself and work on myself. I've got terrible credit from mismanaging my money, I've been hospitalized six times in my life and I haven't been able to work in six years. I've also had a beautiful daughter, have been in a relationship for 22 years and have been medically and emotionally stable for going on three years. I've thought about ending it all sometimes, but I'm also looking forward to living out my life and seeing what comes to be in my future. I really respect you for wanting to research and educate yourself, that's a healthy perspective to be coming from that will serve you well. If you'd like to chat about bipolar more sometime, or about anything, feel free to DM me. I wish you all the best on your journey.😁
