So many trinkets, yet each second less time, when I see those two letters I think….. Everything’s Fine~Stay Safe~All in Time~
Typo’s fixed…Totally revised~I Want….You~ yeah You…
I want short distance to close love,spontaneous outburst of affection not planned touches or moments..fast reflex and stealth like a cat, like me~ Flexibility both internally and externally (you will need it) truth always truth, I hate lies…crazy mad love that somehow makes sense, the kind legend s are made of (smile):))…level headed? Plz love is crazy beautiful wild free, no level headed well thought,it will be, Everything is Fine…I ask the Lord for Devine reward… oh yeah I want thunder under sheets flesh storms that make the sheets fall to the floor both needing more…Devine strength well mastered,Change it’s time for change and it’s coming as long as it reveals beauty and it will….to stop crying and laugh more, I want long walks along the beach from our beach home.$$$$Money lots of it…to share, invest, grow it, leave financial burdens behind forever, I want to be kind even when others are careless with words and emotional harm, learn to not take it personal, it’s really about them not me.
I want to see what God wants for me, I want to align with God’s will and plans, I want to stand straight and strong next to my future companion/Husband learn to still be humble but I can still feel pride inside,help me God to not hate and make me good God make me good~
~Can a Person With Bipolar Lead A Normal Healthy LIfe~
Then you have alcohol. A bipolar person simply shouldn’t drink at all. However I personally drink an occasional glass of wine without repercussions. Remember that the variables are vast in management of bipolar disorder and each person is unique in symptoms and treatment.
Next meditation and spirituality go a long way, I pray each day upon waking. I meditate later in the day. I can not stress enough of how God has helped me. I realize not all share my view in regard to God. But hey it’s all personal and more importantly what works for you. I will say that when I didn’t pray and have faith, I was not a happy camper, and all the meds in the world did not make a difference.
Today I’m on an extremely low dose of meds. I only take 250mg of Lamictal, and 100 mg of Trazadone, Xanax only when needed. My meds are mild in comparison to others I know. It was not always like this for me. But prayer and spirituality centered me. Changed me.
Now if any of the above is not being followed to the best of ones ability, it’s gonna be one hell of a ride.
To answer your question, yes it can be done. But the management is a hit and miss. One has to be diligent in order to stay with the realm of reality, and to thwart mood swings.
What you are explaining almost sounds like rapid cycling. Truly your spouse needs to manage the disorder more closely than I suspect he actually is.
Also no form of violence should be tolerated. Period. None. I can’t stress that enough. Every time you over look physical violence it will increase in severity each time after until a deathly outcome may be achieved. You don’t want that, no one does. But a person in mania or hypo mania does not use logic or have the filter in place that those who don’t suffer mental illness have. So I severely stress again no violence tolerated!
I highly recommend couples counseling. A temporary separation while his medical issues are worked out and managed better. Also you should accompany him to a few psychiatric visits. Why? Because your reality needs to be offered up to the doctor not just his in order to be treated properly.
Besides this is a team effort. Support helps.
Research and read. Here are two books I highly recommend. This one is like a handbook for bipolar people.
Next one is ~Madness~ Marya Hornbacher does a phenomenal job of giving the perspective of a manic bipolar person. I just recently finished this book.
I will tell you, both books will give great insight and ideas to you and your spouse.
Now the flip side. If he does not take treatment seriously, and does not manage his bipolar, then the answer to your question is a firm and loud NO!
You will not be able to lead any type of happy normal relationship and life unless steps are implemented and treatment is followed.
It took 3 and a half years to get my life right. Lots of loss and heartache along the way. Many relationships lost. Financial trouble.. Just huge mess. Even jail time.
If I can be of any further assistance please reach out to me via private message. I am more than willing to help in any way I can, and point you into the right directions.
Also get online and look for support groups in your area.
Going live on Tiffany Werhner ~Moments of Clarity~updated~
Recently I was contacted by a wonderful woman Tiffany Werhner who is striving to enlighten and educate those who suffer mental health issues, She sends her message not only to those who are afflicted with the illness of the mind but also those who suffer loss and trauma . She works closely with the Individual to target and find the coping skills necessary to aide in recovery. She goes beyond that to educate and inform those willing to listen, learn, and break mental health stigma.
What makes Tiffany stand out is she makes herself available and is open to her guest at anytime necessary if need be by calling her personally.
I too am working diligently to strive and successfully share her vision. Tiffany is a psychotherapist with an impressive background in her education and experience. She has the ability to get to the issues’ that are prevalent in her guest life.
Tiffany has her private practice. Unlike most clinical setting she took a step further to create an environment that is more like a guest visiting her home rather than a patient/ client in a clinical office. She strives to make her guest be open, without shame to strengthen and treat the individual to cultivate coping skills,and enhance their quality of life positively.
Tiffany also owns and operates a radio show with a wide range of guest to bring light to a world that still views mental health issues with stigma, and fear.
You can tune in to her show, and call in, she interacts with a diverse group of guest. You can listen to Tiffany Werhner on ” “Moments of Clarity” stationed in Clearwater Florida live on Tan Talk 1340-AM or 106.1-FM, WZHR -AM as well as 104.3-FM or on the Net at
She encourages the listeners to call in with questions or concerns.

I will be a guest on her radio broadcast on June 15th between 12-1, I feel privileged to take part as her guest on the dates above, I also hope to be privileged enough to be on her show monthly to help alleviate stigma and educate those willing to listen and learn.
I have a degree in psychology, I am diagnosed with Bipolar 1 and PTSD. I grew up with two mentally ill parents , I have great insight into many issues Tiffany touches upon on her talk show.
Join us and let’s stand up together to bring hope to those hurting and educate to break the stigma.
