I'm having a bad day...even the people that believe in my disease are telling me i'm being difficult. I'm doing the best I can however lately I feel that people closest to me are dropping off one by one. I haven't done housework in forever...i'm struggling to get by day by day at my new job. I saw my pdoc only a couple of weeks ago wanting to get off my meds but now realize that's a bad plan. I wish my loved one's could just experience one day in my shoes when i'm having an episode. How do you explain to them without sounding crazy? I need a few days of rest and solitude but can't afford to do that for myself and put my job in jeopardy. I guess I just figured I would put this out there in the universe and hope some positive will come back to me.

I'm so sorry nobody responded before now. I know how it can feel when no one understands what we are going through.

I would hang in there and just be patient, your loved ones will always love you even if they don't understand. They would never want
anything bad to happen to you.

I have been feeling pretty exhausted lately and I haven't even felt like posting cause it seemed too hard to do even that.

Don't worry about the housework, in the grand scheme of things it is not important. Eat, sleep and rest yourself.

And again sorry no one posted until now. You have my sympathies. I hope I helped a little.

Take care,

Christine

    Yea, sorry i wasnt on to give you some support. I was working a 24 and a 16 and trying so darn hard to keep out of trouble  (yes i was successful but just barely) .

    The way i have expalined to people like my wife (who isnt bipolar) is this way. She can tell me many different ways what its like to give birth, and i can read tons of literature on the subject but at the end of the day i would only have the most basic "understanding" of what its like to give birth. Thats the way i try to describe being bipolar, "normal" people just cant understand what we go thru. If they had to live one day in our shoes it would probally put them in the hospital because we are used to it, they arnt.

   Hope you are feelign better. Keep posting we are normally much more on the ball than this.

   Bill
