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. My question is : What is the difference between genuine depression v/s just a routine dose of laziness/lethargy ? When does one kick myslef back to shape.. and when is it best to take meds and just sleep ?
