Is it possible for bipolar disorder to lay “dormant”. If that’s the cause how can I tell when it’s creeping back?

      Absolutely. Sometimes I feel “normal,” but it’s so easy to be suddenly in a depressive or normal state after awhile. Feeling baseline for once can feel like you’re unwarranted in having bipolar, or like you’re faking it. It’s not necessarily a one or the other type of deal.

      Yes. There are periods I go a long time without symptoms. When a manic episode comes back for me, it's usually triggered by something.

      well episodes aren't guaranteed to happen all the time! sometimes I'll have periods of normalcy, just watch for the signs and stay healthy :)

        @Beeble that makes a lot of sense, because I was struggling through 2019-2021 but then one day it just stopped. Don’t know how to describe it.
