Support network… family and friends

It’s important to have a network of support around you. People that can help you when times are tough. Not just medical support As in doctor or psychiatrist but close friends and family.

Family and a small group of close friends who know about your disorder sometimes pick up on a change in your mood before you realise yourself.

My colleagues at work also know about my condition, as let’s face it, we spend a lot of time at work therefore they pull me up if they notice any changes in me.

The quicker a change in mood is noticed, the quicker you can medicated yourself to ward off an episode.

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.
