  1. Bipolar is painful but yet interesting for me. I wouldn’t change who I am for the world. Just continue my journey of self care and management like I have. Stay strong everyone

  2. How do you manage the role of spouse and mother along with having bipolar disorder? I’m 28 and currently single but I want to have a family one day. I get discouraged because there’s days I can’t even take care of myself never mind taking care of a household…

    1. If you find someone who loves every piece of you, you will be able to be just fine. You will have that friend that will walk the journey with you. I hope you get to find that person and have an awesome family some day!

  3. Ya know, it’s hard. It’s harder for a bipolar individual to make tough life decisions. Staying in a happy fulfilling marriage is a task all in of itself. You love your partner everything they stand for and the next second you are completely questioning their existence in your life. Stay strong and you will get thru this. That’s what the therapists say anyway. Add real life into it and it’s terrifying that you’ll never get stable enough to have a long term relationship. It takes the right person and understanding of what you are going thru to get you thru. He/she is out there keep searching.

  4. What are the best ways to calm down when a bipolar anxiety sets in? I’m curious to see how others face their fears.

  5. I would want to hear about experiences of others with extensive spending during mania and hypomania episodes. How do you stay in control of your finances? I am happily (well, when I am aware of it!) married with two children and really struggling with periodical HEAVY overspending. I have only been correctly medicated for bipolar for over a year and still go through periods of mild mania which I can only recognise by looking back at what and how much I bought or suddenly spent money on in certain periods of time. Like few months back, as it turns out I was again in my ‘saviour of the world’ mode by subscribing to multiple organisations and making donations to several charities coupled with hundreds of social media posts and sudden ethical wardrobe change – I should note that none of which I could afford! Now left with even bigger dent in our budget. I can be really convincing, to the point that my husband often tags a long and support my ideas until I lose interest and all spending I haven’t told him about comes to light. I am really lost, unsure what to do above handing all cards over to him and completely losing control over our finances.

  6. I’m 24 years old and got diagnosed last year. I found it difficult and still now to see and manage the symptoms. I had to take time off university. But I wonder what the future holds and how bipolar will play out.

  7. I have been married for 38 years, 5 adult kids and 6 grandkids. Most have been through all my bipolar years with me. Easy, absolutely not. I have a loving, supportive husband. It takes a SUPPORTIVE mate.
    Speaking of mania phases and spending money, I completely relate. The year 2017 was a bad one. We’re still recovering from my spending.
    Nonetheless, gotta love us bipolar’s. We try so hard to be understood.
    Peace out.

  8. I have had the privilege of being a stay at home mom for years, and then a student at the university, but I haven’t had a job in years. I have volunteered a lot, but I usually lose interest. I tend to start projects (during hipomania rush) then I quit. I will need a job once I’m done with school, but I am so afraid I will lose the job by quitting it or by having a bad attitude (if I hit depression). I would have quit school already, if my husband hadn’t helped me stay focused. How do we hold on to a job when our moods and interests and energy shift so easily?
