Well, it's not letting me show the thread or post with C & P. Anyway, I was just looking for other moms with bipoloar disorder and wondering how you cope.

 

Thanks.

Thanks for responding. I have never taken any meds for it and I really do not want to. But sometimes, very often really, I am just barely hanging on by a thread. I took 5-HTP and SAMe before and one didn't do anything; the other made me more chatty and "seem" happier, but I really felt exactly the same inside. Any medication I've ever taken for anything though has a bad effect on me and often the opposite effect than it's supposed to. It is much easier to cope when my life circumstances are better but everything is super high stress and I don't see any hint of the stress lessening, unfortuanately.

 

Do you mind me asking, are your friends/family supportive of you with this? Do they understand at all? There is no one in my life that understands what I go through with this. I also get really frustrated with the "it's all in your head," "you can be happy if you want to," stuff. I think it's wonderful to be positive, but I honestly cannot help what happens to me. It's a horrible feeling.

Thanks for listening.

I have been taking a multi every single day. That is the only thing I am actively doing. I just dread the next downturn you know? I'm never up really. I get somewhat close to normal for the "high" part. The lows are very low though and they get all the way down. It sucks. :(

I actually am very very very fortunate to have some amazing support people in my life who really do get it.  It never helps to hear people say "everyone has bad days" or "have you tried yoga"?  They just don't get it  at all.

Yeah, I mean, I already do yoga. It definitely brings me peace and helps but it doesn't magically change things.
