I’m studying bipolar disorders to understand how to help. Here’s an article to ponder (later). Hope I get a chance to finish reading this. Might learn something.
“Can you imagine my dilemma? If you have bipolar, then you probably can. I am too happy. I am too energized. I am manic. If I don’t do something about it now, it will get worse and turn into a mess. I will miss deadlines by working too much. It makes no sense—you would think that I could just take advantage of this mania and work and work and work to get caught up, but there is a price to pay. I am not willing to pay that price any more.” (Julie Fast, 2018; para. 6)
