I usually talk to myself and tell myself good things to uplift my spirit. I try to make it convincing so that the negative mini me inside my head would go away. It’s not easy but I do this to remind myself that despite the negativity there is a positive side.
There is no easy way to say it. So I will be blunt about it. As I mentioned in my last blogpost about my mental illness, that I am seeing a psychiatrist for my depression. But didn’t you know there are different types or form of depression? When I was first diagnosed, I was diagnosed Major Depression. I underwent hypnotherapy to get over it. When I relapsed this year, it progressed to early stage of Bi-Polar Depression Disorder.
My psychiatrist categorized me as a HIGH FUNCTIONING BI-POLAR. Meaning, that I can function like a normal average person. I look normal but behind that NORMALCY, I am suffering from a mental illness that I currently battling every day.
Yes, I am a high functioning Bi-Polar and there are some things I want you to know.
