@roseara, I have bipolar and after trying ten different medications and hours of therapy I can honestly say yoga and meditating are the only thing that has helped me. Turning inward you realize how many destructive thoughts you have and simply acknowledging them can make a huge difference (It doesn’t need to be a spiritual experience if you don’t want it to be). Sleep however is the most important aspect in managing bipolar. If I don’t consistently sleep I become delusional and from that state it is much more difficult to maintain yourself. Overall I would say having bipolar is a wonderful gift despite how terrible it can be. The highs are wonderful and I see beauty in things I never would have before, and the lows are poetic and make way for even more beautiful moments.
