7 Ways To Improve Cognition In Bipolar Disorder | bpHope


Cognitive impairment is one of the bipolar symptoms I struggle with the most. It is definitely bipolar related, not med related. I just came across this article with some approaches to improving this symptom; medication, therapy, lifestyle and just plain sticky-noting your way through life.

Does anyone else deal with cognitive impairment, and if so, how do you manage it?

As I recall, I didn't really start using Critical Thinking until I took navane. Unmedicated bipolar, I used mostly my right brain to navigate the world. I don't know if I'd call that cognitive impairment. I don't use sticky notes but I do have a calendar book where I organize my life and put down important things so I don't have to keep it in my mind.
