are there other women here with bipolar who have had issues with their thermoregulatory system OR hormones / menstrual cycle? i have always had an irregular period, and know this is typical for women living with bipolar disorder, but i recently i went off of birth control pills and spiraled into the biggest crisis of my life.
my thermoregulation system is not functioning sufficiently and i haven't been able to leave the house or exert energy for 4 months straight without overheating and becoming debilitatingly sloth-like and despairing.
has anyone experienced anything like this? i'm working with several doctors to try to get to the bottom of this, and am manually cooling myself throughout the day and night and taking medication so i can return to having a semi-normal life.
My niece is upset cause I left her party early. I did spend two hours there but I just don't do well at parties. It was only immediate family so not that big. She's 7 and I wish she understood my anxiety like her teenage brothers. She pouted for a few minutes but by the time it was cake time I guess she perked up. My sister FaceTimed be for gifts so that was nice
I obsess on everything especially conversations I have had with other people. I have bipolar depression and OCD. I read that obsessing is a bipolar thing but am still confused. I am always confused. I ruminate about things I have said to anyone and everyone. Am I alone ???
