I haven't posted anything about bipolar, or for that matter posted many posts that could be taken too seriously.
I have a few friends with bipolar. It is a serious condition, however I truly believe that too many people are claiming to have it, too many doctors are diagnosing people with it, and in many (not all, but many) people are being given too many prescriptions for it.
Life is stressful. It has lots of highs, and lots of lows. It's only logical to think that moods and the personalities which follow these are the same. It's really really hard to get through the bad times, we all know that and particularly in todays day in age its far too easy to get down in the dumps for months on end. It's also easy to get into a disillusioned state for periods at a time. It doesn't just happen because of 'extreme' events either. Someone people like a regular routine more than others, and if it goes out of wack everything just seems to fall apart.
Unfortunetly some doctors would give you pills to relieve your stress. A far better solution is accepting that you may well feel quite low for awhile. But its very important for you to go outside and smell the roses so to speak. There is a hundred ways you can help yourself get better, probably a thousand! A couple of (serious) tips;
1. Substitute those yummy biscuits for a piece of fruit, doesn't matter which type my personal favourite is seedless grapes.
2. Force yourself to do something social, whether thats meeting a friend down at the pub
3. Have a go at Archery.. yea, this one sounds odd I know but it helped three of my friends who are from quite different backgrounds.
4. Turn off the Tv, particularly if the news is on
5. If your fit go for a run, if your not walk to the dairy and get an icecream - you can say kittyking told you too, but don't send me the bill cheers
