Hi, I have been diagnosed with BP 1 since past 6 months. I have had 3 major manic attacks in past but rest of the time i am fairly normal. I dont expereince any severe effects. But i do go into depressive states and have to keep fighting to stay normal. Luckily i have excellant support from family and friends. But the long duration of my depressive phase is beginning to strain my support members. They are worried as to why i am not able to do simple tasks - and even i sometimes feel it could be becuase of laziness or lack of motivation.

When does one kick myslef back to shape.. and when is it best to take meds and just sleep ?
