Seeing as bipolar awareness day is coming up I’m going to be posting more informative things instead of personal to educate.
People who notice everything but remain silent are to be feared.
Sometimes recovery is waking up early to write in coffee shops and practicing yoga and eating lots of fruit and chocolate and sometimes it’s staying in bed all day and hiding from the world until you can stop crying. All of this is okay. What’s important is that you take care of yourself no matter what kind of day you’re having.
Anonymous said: What is rapid cycling?
By definition- Rapid cycling is a pattern of frequent, distinct episodes in bipolar disorder. In rapid cycling, a person experiences four or more episodes of mania/hypomania or depression in one year.
However, some people- myself included can jump episodes in a single day/week/month
I recently saw a really good analogy to put it in a picture someone without bipolar disorder might understand more clearly.
You know carousel horses? How some go up and down as it spins?
Rapid cycling is like that. and for me, my horse (this time) is going fast.
