Does anyone feel like too many bipolars use their condition as a justification for their actions? I mean, good or bad, having this condition doesn't mean you can just quit living life unless you have it in you to kill yourself which most don't I think. I feel that reading these boards makes me feel like it's ok to pity myself because being BP is a disease and therefore it's not my fault, but that's bullshit. I need to pick myself up and do the things I know I need to do. I have two interviews next week. Do I think I'm ready for a job? NO! Do I think I'll be able to fake it till I make it. Hopefully. Either way I got to try. I can't just sit around day after day doing the same damn thing with no money living at my parents house. Sometimes we need to just say enough is enough. I'm going to stop using my BP as an excuse and instead look at it as someting I need to accept, but learn to compensate for. I take my meds because I know it is the safe thing to do. Life wasn't meant to be all sugar and sunshine all the time. Life is cold and hard; sure sometimes it's great, but you can't use the good times to justify hating the bad times. Adversity needs to lead to strength not subjugation. I know there are people out there that are ten times worse off than me and for you I say keep going, I was there in the darkest hole too, but the only way to get out of that hole is force of will. You might not have it today, but one day you will and you need to draw upon it's strength and make a difference in your own life. Whatever you believe there are two undisputable facts in life; you were born and you will die. Everything in between is up to you. Thank you to those that helped me to believe that true compassion still exists.

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
