Merry Christmas if you celebrate Christmas.
Hope you have a great day today.
I know that I have two groups of people.
Those doing well and those doing not
so well. So I try to write to both.
I received a call this morning from
someone I know will bipolar disorder.
He was VERY depressed. He said
that he was taking his bipolar
medications and following his
treatment plan BUT he had done
so in the last couple of years.
As a result, his wife left him and
he really doesn’t have a lot going on
He is stable and working hard to
do the things he has to do. But it
took his wife leaving and losing
it all to get him to realize what
he has to do.
With that said, we talked and
I basically said that all the can
do is look to the future and learn
from the past. He obviously has
learned the real hard way what happens
when he doesn’t take medication or
take it like it’s suppose to.
I then told him, he can go out,
be a better person and he will find
new friends and possibly a new wife
is he wants. We talked and he felt
better. He is determined to do the
things he is suppose to do from
now on. He said he could of but he just
wasn’t serious before.
I wanted to share that. If you are feeling
down today from past bipolar episodes,
remember your past doesn’t equal your
future. You can turn things around and you
can do it starting today.
In my courses/systems, I talk about how
to turn around bad situations to good
situations no matter if you are a bipolar
supporter or a bipolar survivor:
SUPPORTING AN ADULT WITH BIPOLAR DISORDER?
SUPPORTING A CHILD/TEEN WITH BIPOLAR DISORDER?
HAVE BIPOLAR DISORDER?
I am going to be talking more about some
things you can do to make 2008 a great
year for you in my daily bipolar emails.
But, I can’t do it today because #1 I want
to send out my email about santa and bipolar
disorder and #2, I have to get ready to
go to my parents house. But I will send
this out before the New Year.
Okay, here it is Christmas, and I was
wondering, do you think
Santa Claus has bipolar disorder?
Really, think about it –
One of the biggest symptoms of
having bipolar disorder – mania
is having grandiose ideas, right?
Well, what is more grandiose than
the idea that you can make it around
the world in one night and deliver
toys to every single boy and girl?
And what’s this about the red suit
thing? He must’ve bought it on
his last manic episode, because only
someone in a manic episode would
think something like that would look
good on them!
Ok, and what about the reindeer?
He’s talking to these creatures (and
listening to them) and they are
going to “fly” him around the world
in his quest to deliver all those toys,
right? I’d say that is the psychotic
part of bipolar disorder, for sure.
Yep – delusions and hallucinations
for good ole Santa Clause there!
Now here’s the clincher – the man
goes around all the time saying,
“Ho ho ho,” like who could be
happier! Well, only someone in
a manic episode could be THAT
Still don’t believe me? Start
thinking of some of your own,
No doubt, you will come to
believe that Santa Clause has
bipolar disorder, too!
I know I’ve been a little silly
in my email today, but it’s all
in the spirit of the holidays, as
I wish you all a Merry Christmas!
Catch you tomorrow.
