Dear fellow sufferers, I was diagnosed 28 years ago with bipolar which surfaced immediately with the birth of my daughter. Thought at the time a miracle had happened as I felt so euphoric little did I know I was expseriencing my first bipolar 1 manic episode.
Many depressive episodes later I still am on the alert for any change in mood, alas this has not always been effective in warding of an episode always with devastating results, the manic episodes I mean. I take my medication religously as I live in great fear of having another manic episode, whether the meds can hold me I yet to discover.
