First off, bipolar isn’t contagious and its not just a moody person. Oh! And not all females have it. Yes, it is hereditary. It is also hard to diagnose. We are not freaks, or dangerous. We are basically all feelings and emotions.
Now what is bipolar to me? Its a strength and a weakness. Its the good and bad of all my moods. It’s the reason Im a thrill seeker and also the reason I cant get out of bed. My thoughts race, Sometimes I’m lost in my own head and other times I’m thinking at the top of my game. Bipolar was once a curse to me. Now bipolar is my life. I try to embrace it as well as I can. My mania gets me in trouble. But I love feeling manic. The happy manic. I’m also extremely manic depressive, which ends up sucking for the whole house. I’ll spend a week or 2 in hiding.
So, when I feel normal I embrace it. I love the arts, and creativity. Gifts from my bipolar. I’m an unorganized rollar coaster ride. My life has ups and downs like normal people, mine just come out stronger and last longer. So what is bipolar to me? Its my life and I learned to embrace it and enjoy as much of it as I can. Bipolar does not defy me, I am not a disease, I am a person with a unique brain that sometimes has a mind of its own. Has it knocked me down? Yes, but I always get back up. Im a fighter, thats who I am. I will not let it break me.
Have a beautiful day.
