Being bipolar and knowing that patterns such as triggers and time frames, stress the very fact that we cycle is extremely important. History tends to repeat itself, many things repeat themselves, bipolar individuals happen to skid into this surreal area a little too often.
Wanna know something else all the meds in this world can’t stop what I just mentioned. Lifestyle combined with a medicinal regiment can avert most travesty. But medicine alone can’t. I know. I’ve gone manic, in fact bonkers and was still on my meds. Was I fun, uh not really….well maybe for a bit, but only to myself.
Know something else,the company you keep, the person you may love can be the very trigger that spirals you off balance.
So the question I ask myself and you, are you gaining you right now? That’s right, are you gaining YOU? Or losing pieces here and there before you know it you’re everywhere, all the while thinking you’re put together or at least coming off that way. Hiding that Bipolar cloak and dagger in our pockets ready to pull that pocket inside out and release all that debris and shreds of crap at the bottom. You know the shit you feel in the empty pocket….looks like dust bunnies living there. Those dust bunnies are you, that debris is you and and all that pent up crap.
Are or you the cloth that the pocket is concealed in? Looking all sheik and stylish, but inside crying out with no voice? interesting how its this way or that and this goes for everyone bye the way, not just us bipolar people. People out there, you can learn a lot from those like me willing to share my life, thoughts, feelings, and you don’t have to have bipolar to gain insight either, this is a one size fits all kinda stuff that human beings go through. Just we may handle it a bit different.
I’m writing this for myself, for all those reading this, it’s self check time.
What is healthy? It’s having all YOUR needs met. Is this happening right now? Are do you feel short changed? I feel a bit short changed to tell you the truth. Hey, I am being honest.
Are you happy? Are or you up and down all the F’n way around and it’s due partially to the company you keep? Yeah I mean face it we all are a bit F’d up in our own way, but do we need more of it from others at specific turning points of our life? Crossroads….they are everywhere by the way, and just a reminder…uh.. they can happen any day.
Should you be alone? Yes! Sometimes being alone before polluted thinking takes over you, helps you to clearly see what you couldn’t before and remove yourself from any given situation whether it be love, business, friendships, or just being social at this time.
But living in this world you must take care of you first. You have nothing to give out to others no love or kindness if you don’t love yourself and are not genuinely kind to you.
The road ahead may be a bit stressful but if diplomatically approached you can ease through most anything bipolar or not.
These are my Bipolar Thoughts at this time, hope you got something out of it.
It’ my story, I’m sticking to it. What’s yours?

Thank you for sharing such a deep part of yourself. I’m not bipolar but manic depressive and I agree about sometimes the company we keep hinders and not helps us. I wish you well and peace within yourself. 😊

I have been navigating the mental health system since 2004 when I was diagnosed with bipolar type I. I like going to Icarus Project and NAMI meetings. I wonder if either is available in your area. I’ve met lots if other cool bipolars at these.
I’ve never heard of either. I live in
Fruitland park fl…. Basically middle of nowhere… Hahahaha glad you read my work…
