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!!
