It gets better, trust me. I have it myself and have a couple of friends, one who is BP type II and the other type I, who after +5 years together are marrying next spring :) it’s not easy but I think it’s helpful to know your diagnosis (es) thoroughly, and to communicate or keep track of your highs and lows.
Yeah, some meds suck, but that’s true in general of psychiatric medication, as it’s a trial-and-error thing (we all have unique brains after all). Sometimes they take weeks or stop working and it’s back to the board… But luckily there are many options and combined with therapy life can become normal again (and this is coming from someone who has had the depressive episodes since age 12).
I know it can seem like you “have to accept being like that forever” but it’s not true. Don’t beat yourself up for not being as productive and try to just make the most out of your current situation (aka baby steps).
Also, do you have type I or type II? that can make a big difference, as your view of yourself can become really distorted in manic episodes and your perception of your productivity can be skewed in hypomanic phases. It’s not that you’re useless, it’s just that trying to adjust to a more balanced state takes some time and coaching.
I hope you feel better soon.
Response to 10 Things Spanish Majors Are Tired Of Hearing:
Somebody who thinks that learning a language is just “memorizing phrases” evidently has no clue of how much work it takes to become proficient in another language. Many people are incapable of expressing themselves correctly even in their mother tongue.
This notion that Humanities are less “worthy” than Sciences is truly ridiculous, and comes from a very limited utilitarian and reductionist POV.
