    1. Yes! Such great advice. It’s so easy to let bipolar hold our true selves back in fear of the next episode. Thank you!

  1. I like to remind myself that just because others don’t think like I do, it’s really not their fault. So I try to have just a little bit more patience with them. We can’t all be as special as those of us with bipolar.

    1. Haha, so true, we all can’t be so special 😉 but also such a great reminder to respond to everyone with acceptance, kindness, and respect. Thank you!

  2. Take your meds. Just shut up and take your meds. Take your fucking meds…
    I say all of this gently and with a great deal of love and concern…but I mean it. Lol

    Have a sense of humor…and take your meds.

  3. Finding acceptance that I have Bipolar was the most difficult to living with it. I found that having a healthy respect of the disease has helped me to learn as much as I can about Bipolar so that I can acknowledge what is me, and what is the Bipolar. Self education has enriched my life about Bipolar, giving me empowerment on how to manage my mental illness (some days are less manageable than others). My daily mantra is… Bipolar does not have me, I have Bipolar.

    1. I love that you mentioned having a healthy respect for bipolar. It’s not only acceptance but it also implies not fighting with the bipolar. The acceptance of bipolar can help us in more ways than we know. It helps us to be more at peace with our lives, I believe. Thanks so much for your input!

  4. As a newly diagnosed Bipolar 2 the best advice I can offer is not to lock yourself away for fear that you’re brokenness will drive everyone from you. This is just a new chapter of your life, not the end of the book.
