Today, I heard someone tell me “She must be bipolar because he seems to be crazy.” Of course, I didn’t say anything about myself, but I wanted to. I always hate that bipolar people are identified as crazy. It’s not always true. I have been going to doctors, therapists, staying on medications and anything I can do to keep my illness in control.
I feel that the best thing I ever did was moved to the northeast coast, North Carolina. It’s beautiful with the most friendliest people in the world. When I go to doctors, grocery stores, pharmacists, and most stores I feel so welcome. When I lived in Dallas I was afraid to talk to anyone. Here, I look forward to talk to anyone I can. It’s been the most satisfying experience I’ve ever had.
My dreams have started to come true. I’ve always dreamed to be a popular photographer and to start a business in photography. I’m starting to see that come true. How did I do that? I took my medication.
I make sure I get the medications I need. I never stop taking them and I always listen to what the doctor says. I go to therapy to find out what might be causing the problems. I feel that I’m not too proud to listen to what doctors have to say.
If you want to get well or maybe to feel normal make sure you see a doctor. Bipolar is not something that just goes away you need to treat it. You need to stopped being in denial and reach out for help.
