Think of bipola…

Think of bipolar disorder in the same way you would think of diabetes or high blood pressure. That is, you have a chronic medical illness that requires you to take medication regularly. Taking medication over the long term markedly reduces the chances that your illness will interfere with your life. There are also certain lifestyle adaptations you will need to make… None of these changes, however, require that you give up your life goals, including having a successful career, maintaining good friendships and family relationships, being physically healthy, having romance, or getting married and having children.
