A cool dark room is a must to getting a good nights rest. Most medications that are taken at night also assist in knocking you down, relaxing the mind to ensure a restful sleep. Just ONE night with a disturbed sleep can have you spiralling out of control. You may need to increase meds to alleviate this issue. I find either reading or watching television in a lounge room with dimmed lights or even candles assist to wind down an overactive mind and prepare myself for a night of blissful slumber.

Bipolar is an important topic for me as I have travelled through the highs and lows of this particular mental illness for just over 25 years now. Follow my journey from the past to present and hopefully some of you out there may gain some inspiration and come to the realisation....that it can be a positive and rewarding experience once you have learnt the tools of the trade...and enable you, or someone special in your life, to have a fruitful and rewarding life.
