the bad days..

Posted , 6 users are following.

Has anyone ever felt so alone they just dont know what to do where to go or how to feel? Well yes i do, today is one of them horrible days where i just cannot see any light at the end of the tunel and the bi polar is winning this war for sure. When u get dianosed with bi polar they tell you that u will never feel alone and theres always someone to speak too guess doctors dont realise that bad days stretch to the weekend the days where no one is avalible. I have a boyfriend but ive kept everything in for so long i put on a brave face to show him im fine but inside i feel like a bottom less pit that no love or affection is going to fill or i can just never feel happiness or the feeling of being so happy cos the bipolar is just sitting next to me to remind me that tomorrow is a diffrent day and its probley gunna be filled with sadness and pain.

    I would tell your boyfriend about your probs and if he's serious about you he will understand and help, I don't really know to much about Bipolar but I've had my depression on and of for some 12-14 yrs and I've now had the worse period of all and I've really struggled but there is light at the end of the tunnel as its taken me over 6 months to just see the light so stay focused and you'll get there.

    Dear Samantha, I am so sorry that you are feeling so low, every day must be very

    Difficult to contend with. Do you have a " crisis team " in your area 24hrs a day?

    If you do, then do not hesitate to call them.. the Samaritans are also an excellent

    Support for absolutely any kind of problem,

    Have you returned to your doctor and told him/her EXACTLY how you feel, you do

    Really need to talk to someone...and maybe have your medication either upped or

    Changed to help you to feel a lot, lot better.....I truly wish you the very, very best

    Now, tomorrow and in the future, please take very good care of yourself,

    You will be in my thoughts and prayers.... Deirdre and all the family xxx

    Hey, are you on any meds? Things do get better, I have a brilliant gp who is bipolar. Life seems gloomy but you can fight it, say I know what you are and I know how to beat you! Sounds cheesey, but it works. I don't know what the protocol for bipolar is, but maybe exercise would help with the lows? Sorry if this isn't helpful, I know regular physical exercise releases endorphines which help with relaxation and calm. I can kind of relate because ? I have depression and OCD, the key is not to give yourself a hard time and just say I won't let this define me, screw how I feel.
