I made myself busy with work, visitors and cooking. It worked so far. Think Lamotrigine even in low dose works. But we haven't won yet. The worst time is still in front of me. Tbh I feel much better since the summer when find out my diagnose and also since I joined here. It is a massive relieve to have others in similar situation to talk to as I was always alone and lost. So MD forum is one of the strategies as well. Hope all will go well for you Maxy.
Going to bed at the same time & getting lots of sleep. That helps a lot.
People bring around the nicest food gifts. Taste a sliver. Put the rest in the freezer.
When the Bipolar got out of control, in years past,it was because I was being the life of the party at every event. Accepting all invitations. Staying out all night & eating everything in sight.
Taking it easy at the Holidays is no guarantee. It has however proven to keep me more stable.
Ok. You are thinking. Boring. But with the Bipolar, I can't take the violent swings & what it does to me anymore. If I don't help my meds, my meds don't help me! Pamela
