I've only posted about
4 posts and already people are disagreeing with me
Yeah i understand what your saying,but for me it's easy to give up on things you CAN control and blame it on one of the labels. Like things that might have nothing to do with your bipolar,but you say 'well thre's not much i can do about
that' without really putting the effort in to understand it. Does that make sense? I've thought i was weaker than everyone else too before,i couldn't understand how other people coped and i still don't understand what they think about
or what we do differently. If you say 'it's the BP not me' - the BP is you, it's just part of you it's not a seperate thing,don't you think? It's just how your mood effects you,if you give it a seperate power in itself then your letting it win. I try to give it as little power ovr myself as i can, but obviously it's imposible to do.
I don't know i don't know. We all have different ways of dealing with it i guess. I don't mean to be argumentitive,i am just trying to aticulate how i try to cope, but i don't cope so good so maybe i should take in what your saying and see if it has more benefit for me. Your right though, the most important thing is knowing other people suffer the same way,bipolar makes you feel very much alone until you realise you have friends. The more time you take out for friends the easier your own problems become too :)
