I pose a question; being Bipolar knowing both the darkness of depression and knowing the almost perfect high of mania. How do you cope with your existence? Everyone has to have an outlet of some kind. Is it the drugs you take? Is it writing about what youre going threw; helping others through conversation or writing? How about a creative outlet, paint, sketch, poems, music, or all the other hundreds of things we use to express ourselves? My opinion is that we each have an outlet of one kind or another; wither it be time in thought ,creativity, enjoying a cup of hot chocolate how about times with good friends or exploding only to find a brief moment of clarity in our lives. I would be very interested in the groups responses. What do you do to make this constant roller coaster manageable? Thanks for your opinion z
