Issues


Dealing with mental health issues
Step 1 Talk about it
So I am




My issue is bipolar mania

(We all do have issues of sorts)

Mine I received on arriving

Mine from my parents was caught


The issue’s not so much the problem

We all have to go with the flow

It’s how we then deal with these issues

Decides to which way we will go


Like you, I must take what life throws me

Must go with the flow just like you

My issue’s controlled with medications

I hope you have sorted yours too

Bipolar disorder is caused by an imbalance of chemicals in the brain.
Born with it, no cure. Treated with medications. They work for me, preventing mania from running away but still leaving my creative edge. I am fortunate. Medications don’t always work for some. Bipolars cycle from extreme highs (mania) to extreme lows (depression).
