Im glad that you're doing well! I have bipolar type 1 and could possibly be schizoaffective. I'm here if you want to chat or have any questions!
I was diagnosed with Bipolar several years ago.. Anxiety and Depression is a beast in itself.
How do you guys deal with it in your life (I'm assuming you have jobs and are independent)? Is it hard to manage? What are some things you do to help calm yourself down before and after an episode (if you're aware that an episode is occurring)?
It can be overwhelming for sure, the days of depression are the worst because I want to isolate myself.. When I'm in mania I recognize it but it's hard to accept.. Honestly I make myself take breaks at work to walk and breathe.
I have Schizoaffective Disorder and my life is more fun than most people's….
Sometimes episodes are very persistent and cannot be calmed or lessened, but tjere are still lots of things that can be done to help with the stress of them
Oops, accidentally hit enter. You can relax daily, morning amd evening for example, by meditating, listening to your favorite music, and doing muscle relaxation. You can get a calming scent like lavender oil in the little bottles and keep it on hand
You can have a mantra or phrase to repeat to yourself 'its all ok' 'ive got this' and you can picture stop signs if things get overwhelming. Sleep is very important to help with emotions, so try to get plenty of sleep
Its important to recognize the signs and try to stop major panic/anxiety attacks before they start. Its ok to have bad days, just do your best to get through them and be understanding with yourself. And use the energy from a manic to your advantage
Sorry for so many posts, but i hope some of the advice there can help out

Your god is fake
My god is not fake. Believe what you want that's fine that's within your right but I have a right too. You don't have to agree with me but you don't have to disrespect my religion either.
I'm sorry people feel the need to impose their unwanted opinions like that 💗💗
You'll see it is possible to love another person. It'll take time, patience, effort, but it IS possible.
I still sleep with his sweater. Is that weird?
Anyway, I feel very alone with dealing with whatever's going on in my brain. I still don't have a diagnosis but my doctor's leaning towards bipolar. Never met anyone like me before and I wish I did.

Recognizing your problems is half the battle. Stay strong. Have you ever tried dream interpreting or journaling? Sometimes putting them onto paper makes them less scary, or you can noticed recurring themes connected to real life events
