I am a person who happens to have bipolar disorder, anxiety, and OCD. Those do not define me. Oh, but they used to. My mood changes made no one want to be around me. My anxiety and OCD took me to places I never want to go again. I got help after years of self harm and self medicating. I am not saying that I never have days where climbing in a hole sounds better than reality. Everyone has days like that just some more than others. When I finally sought help and had a support system, even if it is just two people, I felt relief. A weight taken off my shoulders. I now have someone to hold my hands when I am picking at my cuticles so I can focus on slowing down my thoughts. I now have someone to help and love me through mania and my depression. My support system and willingness to always make progress but never strive for perfection helps me get through one day at a time.

    What has helped me is getting rid of toxins (Alcohol, drugs, tobacco), exercise, medication (mood stabilizer, atypical antipsychotic), supplements (vitamin D, Vitamin b-complex, vitamin C, multivitamin, magnesium), healthy diet (no sugar, veggies, protein, good fats, grains, fruits), meditation, positive thinking, good support system (including a good psychotherapist), coping well with negative people and circumstances, having faith, I also have been trying out a turmeric tea (a teaspoon of turmeric boiled with milk) which has been shown to help with depression, getting sleep and rest, relying on comedy to make you laugh and help keep you happy. I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder at 22 years old have been suffering since about 16 years old. I will be 28 in march. Stay strong. also listening to the right music has helped me stay strong through desperate times
