When you’re dealing with bipolar disorder, the holidays can be a tough time. Although I’m doing better than I was several years ago, this time of the year can still be a little tough. Everyone around me is just so happy and I start feeling a little melancholy. How do I deal with this feeling?
I always tell my husband about it. I know that I can always go and talk to him about my feelings because he can relate on some level. We’ll sit down and talk about what I’m feeling in the moment and why I may be feeling that way. It always helps a lot.
