I have recently been diagnosed as bipolar type 2. Not surprising as it runs in my family, and after assessing my life it paints a clear picture. My question isn't necessarily about the way it affects my mood specifically, but more so other aspects of my life.
Long before I was diagnosed I've always viewed my life as an inconsistent shift of different phases. I understand it is normal for people to enjoy doing something short term and then become bored of it,, but is this more common for people affected by this mental illness? There are certain hobbies I am very passionate about, writing being my main example. Though no matter how much I enjoy something or how much I want to work on a project, I can never seem to keep at it. It always feels so inconsistent. It has always been like that. I can never stick to something no matter how much I want or need to do it. II desire so much to continue writing, I have so many ideas, but can never bring my self to do it. I mostly just want more information on if the feeling that everything is just moving from one phases to another randomly is a result of being bipolar and if there are tips or ideas to make it seem less frustrating. This sort of information I find very valuable as I assess things and move forward.
