This situation kinda sucks

By Rene PetersPublished 3 months ago 1 min read

Well, I guess it isn't completely fixed with medication.

Too bad I have no results from meditation.

I have more energy than ever before,

My crash will be lower than the floor.


I wrote this since I am in a hypomanic episode from bipolar disorder. If anyone is interested in a full length piece on my experience with bipolar depression (bipolar 2), let me know. I'm very open about having it. Being honest about it took years, but I'm at that point.

    I just started reading your stories. I am trying to find out how it all started. So far I know you started therapy at 16 with a wrong therapist sadly. The best therapist is someone who experience what you are going through and has helped themselves in the process.

    Mental health is as important as our physical health. I am an advocate for taking center stage and lifting the veil from mental health stigma! Excellent piece!

  • "My crash will be lower than the floor". That line hit me so hard! I thought this was the educational piece you were writing, sorry. Also, yes, if you're open to talk about it, I'd love to learn more about your experience with bipolar. It'll help create awareness as well!
