Keeping on track (possible tiggers)
jamireles1 posted:
Back in Feb. I had a really hard time handling my depression. With my meds and help from my family I got through the worst and pushed forward. Seems like that's the only way to make it through being bipolar. About a month ago, I began to become manic and not as stable as I was. Now, of course comes the roller coaster ride. Bad timing for me, I'll be alone for a while (family going out of town). Keeping busy will hopefully help. Trying not to go back to my old ways.

jamireles1, good for you for having a plan to try to keep yourself stable while your family is out of town instead of going back to your old ways! If you think you need to, be sure to contact your pdoc or therpist (if you have one) for extra support and/or med adjustment if need be - that's part of self care.

Anyway, good taking care of yourself!
