What’s fantastic about being Bipolar 1 ?! Actually, there is a-lot to be grateful for…
I tend to operate in excessive emotions and tend to be very passionate.
I have the gift of words and have been a poet as long as I can remember.
I have a keen understanding of “what goes up must come down… then back up again” and can prepare for each.
When I have great ideas, they are indeed great.
When in a perfect state of Mania, I experience the type of euphoric high that people pay for.
I am perpetually in lust.
Being Bipolar, while at its worst is very bad, but when it is at its best, there is nothing like it. Perhaps that is why substance abuse is a co-morbid disorder… we are constantly in search of that perfect mania euphoria. Just maybe.
I certainly get my lows and impulsivity from this disorder… yet I also get my extreme passion and emotion. I can feel every particle of my being to the best of extremes and to the worst.
Embrace the beauty!!
