Feel free to check out my book on relationships, While there is a lot of truth in this article, it seems to speak to people who are in the earliest phases of addressing a bi-polar diagnosis, or people who have trouble managing their disorder.
I don't want to down-play any of the serious issues raised here, however, as someone who has lived with bi-polar disorder for over thirteen years, I think it's also important to provide some hope for family members and for people who are coming to terms with the diagnosis.
In addition, when the sufferer goes into a manic cycle, the inability to sleep can disrupt the whole house.
Bipolar Disorder is one of the most severe mental disorders a person could have.
The lives of those suffering from it are hugely impacted by it.
I am 29 and i have lived with bipolar all my life and not known about, i could be happy and talkitve with my freinds and work colleges in the morning and in the evening i couldnt look at them they would irritate me so much, recently i had a really bad spell where i was going up and down so much and wanted to kill my self, my partner made me go to the hospital to go get checked out, this is where i was diagnosed with rapid cycling bipolar i was prescribed really good medication that has helped my life no end, dont be afraid to talk about it or go get checked out guys it helps so much and you are not alone. One of the first black psychiatrists and because he spent his life changing the world I am just getting to know him.
I am so much like him and my partner has been going through manic depressive states most of our lives.
