I'm new to DS and already finding it helpful in accepting my BP diagnosis. Here's my question for the forum: Does any one have a particular time of day that is more difficult for them? My PDOC told me that most people with BP have a time of day that's more troublesome for them. This applies to me and it's early morning and mid-afternoon. Early morning is simply getting motivated and functioning. Mid-afternoon is mood swing time. My PDOC is going to be changing my meds in three weeks so hopefully the mood swings will disappear. Does anyone have any advice on how to get through these times? Typically if it's bad, I'll go for a walk, take a shower, or seclude myself after taking an ativan. For the a.m. I have no tricks other than motivating to get my meds and a cup of coffee! Any advice would be appreciated as I am still very new to being BP and don't know many methods of getting through a meltdown or motivating in the morning!
