Do you really stabilize?

I’m curious does anyone actually find a dose of medication that stabilize them? Or is it a forever dosage change?

My living condition isn’t stable so I can’t be stable. I’m hoping one day I can find a place to call my forever home, but until then.

Is there hope that my Bi Polar 1 will be normal? I think my up and down is normal to me but my family can’t handle it

Depends also of stress, diet, sleep..
And i think it's more like forever change in dose and medication. Symptoms change even with medication so we have to find new ones or increase doses.
But don't worry, it can get better.
Are you seeing a doctor for your bipolar?

I know this sounds really REALLY crazy but when I was struggling with Manic depressive bipolar disorder, and I was going through my one of my usual depressive moods, eating a bag of Lay's potato chips instantly got me out of my depressive funk. I know it sounds unusual and it also sounds like an ad bu I studied neuroscience for at a time in college and the science checks out. I thought about the mechanism behind what happened to me and I think the salt in the chips unblocked the part of my brain that houses depression. I think just a teaspoonful of salt could also do the trick, but where's the fun in that? Try it next time you're feeling depressed.
