I have been having really good days and sleeping better.
I think I can safely say the anti-depressant patch is working along with my mood stabilizer.
I am feeling better than I have for longer than I have in a really long time. For months.
My thinking is back on track, my confidence is back and my anxiety is down.
I am not depressed, sad or manic. Even though I am even keel, I still feel creative and able to tackle my projects.
I am enjoying life again.
Usually when I am feeling better, I tell myself, I don’t have bipolar. But this time around it is different.
I know I have bipolar and I have to keep maintaining. I can’t go off the medicaiton or miss dosages. I have to keep going to psychotherapy at least once a week. It is just as important as taking the medications.
I have to get involved in activities with a group of people, make a social connection. Make sure I get involved in things that take me and keep me out of the house and engage my mind as well as my body for overall health.
If I do these things know, it will help me recognize the signs of a possible relaspse more easily.
love to all
