hi all - just a query really. today I was diagnosed as having a virus like shingles/chicken pox. im experiencing real bad irritability (I know we get that when we feel il anyway) but I really feel like its having some level of effect on my bipolar (1) has anyone else experienced this?
I know professionals say that mental and physical heath are linked but just wondered if it could to this extent.?
thanks everyone. hope you are all managing to keep on level footing.? x
