Diagnosed with Bipolar disorder only a few years ago, a lot of past behavior was explained and some are investigated. This is an honest and open account of circumstances that led to behavior so outrageous that people could not understand why one could do the things I did.

People around me could no longer cope with my behavior of self-medicating and use and abuse of over the counter drugs and alcohol. More strange behavior was that I stopped eating and also thought that if I slept, I do not have to eatI explore the feelings of pain and why it exists. It is not a physical pain but an emotional inside pain and one of the reasons why we self medicate.

I was living in a dream world of floating sleeping nothingness. Only in nothingness was there no pain.By spending time with other people with similar psychological conditions and disorders and other illnesses, a sense of belonging and acceptance came to me.Trauma, such as being raped and keeping it secret for many years, became known during hypnotherapy Dealing with the truth and not feeling ashamed or guilty about it, helped with the healing process.I found out how losing people I was supposed to protect, influenced my life, but feelings of guilt persisted.

Having miscarriages, being molested and raped leaves a permanent scar on the subconscious and may be the cause of many troubles later in life.When youve hit rock bottom, how can you get back hope? How can you regain what you have lost? What I did know was that I would have to fight for my home family to take me back. Even if it meant I would have to fight inside myself with myself.

It took a huge amount of work on my side to be accepted again, but it can be done.“How can you get back hope? How can you regain what you have lost? We were feeling DESPAIR and were going to have to replace that with REPAIR. Where we were DESPONDENT (hopeless, nowhere to go from here), we were going to be RESPONDENT - (where you were not communicating, you must now start communicating.) We were DESTITUTE but we must have RESTITUTION.

Restitution is a swing around, a turn around to have a goal in your life again. You must make a decision to start thinking and living positive. This is very difficult in most instances, but if you make a start, it becomes easier. And to do this you need all the help you can get.Then there were the relapses. Every time I decided to stop taking my medication, I had a relapse. Eventually I realized that I had to be on medication to feel better or somewhat normal again.People with bipolar disorder can live a splendid life. I am a good example of that.Read my story of the Bipolar Adventure and if my story can give hope to others in the same boat, I have achieved my goal.
