Over the years of dealing with bipolar, I’ve had to learn a lot on how to manage this disease and not let it get the best of me. Stress in life is evitable; those who work face it from their bosses. We face it from our families, balancing the many responsibilities we hold. We face it from financial struggles.
We cannot control when the depression hits us, but we can learn to control how we react to a given situation. We can take back the control of how we react. This is different than letting this disease control us as a person.
