Feeling good and have been doing good, no episodes for a long while. Seen doctor and she said if there was anything to diagnos me w/ it would be bipolar 2. Is there anyone out here who has some type of bipolar or mental illness? I want to talk to somebody who does but I've never met anybody w/ issues similar to the ones I have.

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

He blocked me. My ex blocked me. Like I mean nothing. Like I'm nobody. As though we haven't kissed or laughed or had any meaningful memories at all. I'm just no one. Gone.

If he blocked you, he's not worth your tears. You're a great person and you'll find a great life partner one day.

Thank you for that. Hopefully i will.

Good day today. It's rainy which made me take a nap because rain makes me sleepy but I feel more relaxed because of it.

Still missing ex but realizing that I don't need him. He'll always have a place in my heart but I don't need him. All I need is god and his truth and love.If that's all that'll ever be then that's ok.

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 💗💗

It's been a little over half of a year since me and my ex broke up but I pathetically still miss him and in love with him. My first love. My best friend. How could I ever learn to love anyone else?

You'll see it is possible to love another person. It'll take time, patience, effort, but it IS possible.

Missing ex. I know I have to let him go but it's hard. I still love him. Overall heavy with melancholy, loneliness, and my mind has been indecisive if it wants to be in an episode or not. Here or not.

I still sleep with his sweater. Is that weird?

15 Jan 2021

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.

15 Jan 2021

youre gonna get through this im rooting for you!! it just takes time to heal

15 Jan 2021

Need time,to start a new life.and patient. Good emotions, friends to distract from it.good luck.

Good day overall. Centered- for the most part. Still feeling a little bit of the ache from the breakup but I'll be okay.

Feel really good and proud of myself because I fought through a self-sabotaging impulse and won, got some missing work done, and was overall productive for the most part of my day!

I am okay. I mean, I've been better but I've also been worse. I wrote something today. It's not the happiest piece (like it almost always isn't) but it's something.

Pretty decent day. Bad sleep though. Hopefully tonight's sleep is better.

I'm feeling really good. And no, this is not me in an episode, it's genuine and sencere. I'm motivated to make some positive changes in my life and not be scared of them because they feel good.

Decent day overall. Almost had an episode but the new pills brought me out of it which I'm really glad about. I am okay.

A little better day today. Just trying to get back on my schedule after my episode yesterday. Seems to be going well so far.

Had an up and down episode. Tried to fight it off but couldn't because It was too strong this time. Felt torturous.

Lazy but good day overall. I fought my mind today so I wouldn't crash into another episode with help from my mom and meditation. Am exhausted but proud.

I'm okay. And if I am not then I will be. I genuinely believe that. And I think I'm learning to be okay with that. I can feel my emotional wounds starting to heal.

I had a disturbing dark dream last night. It's been haunting me all day. Hopefully tomorrow is better. I'm going to try to put myself out there more and interact. I'm a shy person so that's a big deal

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

I'm okay. I've been doing lots of yoga and meditation. My body seems to be adjusting quite well so far to these meds. Can't stop thinking of my ex though:/. I miss him and it hurts to think about him.

The hurt, as it expresses in body, can be focus of next meditation. Body scan, feel sensations, relaxing into what is... as it is.
