I’ve not been on in a while, whilst my moods are now more controlled not as extreme. I’m still up and down I feel great for a few days very productive then back down feeling lost I’ve been like this for about 4 weeks now I’m not feeling great. My heart feels sad and lost. I’m irritated to the point of wanting to physically hurt someone then singing then numb.
It would be nice to know someone who has been aware of there bipolar for a while and there experiences..... xxx

You’re still so young! Over the next couple of years I think you’ll see some stabilization. Our brains aren’t fully developed until we’re 25 anyway

So I’m 25 and I started actually treating my anxiety less than a year ago and I’m doing a lot better. Don’t be afraid to ask your doc about options!
