I hope today is a good day for you.
Today I want to talk to you about:
We hear a lot about appreciating things in life, big and small.
But the big things we should appreciate a lot – Like the fact that we are even alive, that counts for a lot.
Our spouses, families, and children…and their health and well-being.
Our homes. Our cars (and the fact that they run).
Our jobs. Financial security.
But where does bipolar disorder fit into all that?
Those are all GOOD things, you’re probably thinking.
How can you possibly appreciate something like bipolar disorder?
You probably think I’m crazy.
In my courses/systems I talk about bipolar episodes, about having them and how to avoid having them.
NEW LEARN THE SECRETS OF THE MOST SUCCESSFUL WITH BIPOLAR DISORDER?
SUPPORTING AN ADULT WITH BIPOLAR DISORDER?
SUPPORTING A CHILD/TEEN WITH BIPOLAR DISORDER?
HAVE BIPOLAR DISORDER?
I’m not saying having bipolar disorder is something to appreciate (that WOULD be crazy of me! 🙂
But what I’m saying is to appreciate the NON-episode times.
Many people think that bipolar disorder consists of episode after episode, but that’s not true.
In the normal course of the disorder, people can go months and even years between episodes.
What I’m telling you is to appreciate the NON-episode times.
Yes, you do still need to be prepared for episodes when they do come, I’m not saying that you don’t.
And you do still need to be vigilant and watch for signs and symptoms of episodes so that you can catch them before they happen.
Still be careful of triggers that may signal an impending episode.
But there are longer periods of normalcy than there are periods of episodes, and I’m saying to appreciate THOSE times.
Hey, I am heading off to the gym now. Catch you tomorrow.
