“Bipolar is a gift. God gave us the gift of bipolar to feel so ins tensely other people’s pain and to help them through it. To love emmensly. To show people how to love. To help others with our talents. So if your bipolar and you don’t know it yet your a gift from God. We are rare and special and brighten other people’s days. Don’t listen to the lies of the enemy in your head. Fight back by saying the opposite of what’s being said. Like if your stuck ruminating on thoughts that keep you awake. Say no stop. This thought isn’t true. It’s not really happening it’s a lie. Love builds you up the enemy tries to bring you down. All the enemy ever needed was love but he would except it from God and he betrayed him. So he is so really bad messing with everything on earth and our minds too. But remember gods plan is to restore to u what the enemy has meant for harm. God has good plans for us until the end of our days. He will carry us home unscathed, untouched by the enemy. God will save us all. Don’t do anything extremely awful abide by his commandments. If your broken many that’s ok pray and repent and your sins are washed away. Then believe they are and forget them. Also, if you have mental illness of any kind you are special and loved by God. Find a hobby, sewing, knitting, basketball, any sport, get out in the world pursue your dreams it’s never too late. Don’t let life pass you buy. And don’t be afraid. Gods holding onto every step of the way to carry you home. If your confused and in the early stages of your mental illness. Don’t worry you will get better at handling it. You will become more aware. When you find the right medicines. Some will hurt, some will cause pain you might have to endure and it passes and you will have never felt better in your life. Never stop a medicine unless you are in so much pain you can’t function it might be a reaction. Like I had. But medicine is so important to keep you stable. And prayer church bible. Don’t give up on you. Your life has just be

It's just a chemical imbalance in our brains like diabetes and psyical illness. We need to take care of ourselves we can get better and have functioning normal lives. It's not a curse. It's just our brain needs medicine like any other body part. But the brain is the main part so it messes with how we think.

@[email protected] Thank you so much. We have a lot in common through our bipolar experience, although I never made it to the point of having kids. The bipolar stole my relationships, and my ability to be in relationships for a long time. It's part of why I lost my faith. Who deserves to be this alone? It's a curse. (sigh). Thank you for the prayers. I will keep trying. I hope we both succeed in beating this illness. It's a bad one!

@[email protected] I've been to church. One of the traits of bipolar is to change religions a lot. Tell you what, next time you go to church, tell the pastor you are bipolar. Wait a month, you'll find out just how loving and caring your church family is.

I think it is great that you have found something that works for you. If standing on your head in a canoe, in the middle of a lake, brings you peace and tranquility, I suggest you buy a canoe. But don't expect me to buy one, I can't stand on my head and I can't swim.

Everyone looks at bipolar as a chemical imbalance and for the most part that is true, but we ignore the behavior. I feel best when I am spending money and the methods I go about to obtaining that money would be questionable. I know that if my mood is elevated, the quest is on. I know that if I'm depressed it's often associated with not having money to spend. Give me money in a depressed state and my mood starts climbing. Is it all chemical? Possibly, but there is a stimulus, a catalyst. I don't get that rush in church, it's not a pleasant experience.
