Living Bi-polar, you have to learn your triggers.
Mine are: emotionally charged music, sentimental scenes in movies or television, thoughts of my childhood, my sister.
I can be in the best mood, but if I’m ever triggered, I will immediately fall into a deep sadness that seems impossible to climb out of.
The most frustrating thing about these episodes, is that I know it is insane and makes absolutely no sense, but there is nothing that I can do to snap out of it. I just have to hope that it will pass quickly.
Being in a relationship while enduring this constant emotional rollercoaster is very difficult. I am fortunate to have found someone, (after many failed attempts may I add) that loves me when I’m up and when I’m down.
If you are struggling with this, please know that there is someone out there who will love you, all aspects of you.
P.S. you deserve it whether you think you do or not 😉
