Im BP 2 also. And i have just came thru a hopeless spell. TOok a month to get thru it but now i am out the other side and glad to be here. I am learning to accept that this just may be my lot in life.
I hope you find a good place soon. I can deal with lots of stuff but that hopelessness place is the absolute worst. If u need to post more here, that may help.
OH GOD, going thru this without meds?????? Are you freaking kidding me. I just went thru a mania that lasted a week and it was the pits. Absolutly awefull. And that was with meds on board. I wouldnt want to try this without them. I know, i remmeber how out of control i really was. I can't/won't go back there again.
Now there is something to be said for limiting stress in your life. Stress for me seems to really send me over the edge. I have even had a chance to live overseas, on an air force compound for 4 months with no real family stress, got plenty of sleep, meals made for me, lots of excersise and a job i loved. Guess what, no issues at all aside from being a hypomanic happy person.
That may be where i am heading, i may have to reduce the stresses to as low as i can go. Thank god for cycling, my pets, and everything else that helps me thru these days.
