I have to agree with Parisss.

I read somewhere that you do not 'become' bipolar. you 'are' bipolar. I have always been moody, extreme, and I don't think medications can take all of that out of me, nor would I want them to. I find that even on medication I have these behaviors, habits, whatever you call them, that I'm still dealing with. "Balance! That is what you are working towards" My therapist repeats again and again.

So I find myself 'being' bipolar even on medication. And I even see in my 3 year old daughter those same 'bipolar' tendancies -- at 3!!! She is black and white, jeckle and hyde. Passionate, moody, euphoric one day and hateful and 'in one of her moods' other days -- these changes last for days or weeks. Am I diagnosing my 3 year old? No....but keeping an eye on her. Everyone who saw me grow up says we are exactly the same in temperament. And I want things to be easier on her than they were for me. I sometimes feel I am going to therapy and working so hard for HER benefit -- if I can understand myself better, it will help her in the long run. One generation at a time...
