How does bipolar disorder affect your daily life the most?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The most eh?

Every day is so different as is the mood I’m in to deal with it. My mood determines how I deal with situations and how well I handle stress. It’s frustrating because what I COULD have dealt with just fine yesterday can totally bring me to tears today.

So if I had to pinpoint how it affects me the most, I’d say that it leaves me in a constant state of perpetual frustration. I never know what kind of mood I’ll be in and I hate it.

I mean I know everyone has good days and bad days, but with bipolar, your good days can be horrible days just because of the part of the cycle your in. And a bad day can be a freaking party when you’re (hypo)manic.

I’m not complaining (much) because it does make life rather interesting. I’m just saying it would be nice to have some sort of forewarning. I mean my monthly cycle last 28 days…can’t I get some sort of time frame like that for my bipolar cycles? Like every 34 days you’ll be manic for 5 to 7 days…. What? Don’t tell me that wouldn’t be nice!!
