diagnosis confusion

1 Comment

After a week in the psych ward last month, I am trying to let it all hang out, find a new way of being that is a little more honest, even if it is a little unorthodox and rough around the edges.

It seems I might not meet the criteria for bipolar 2 because I am so (painfully) aware and articulate of what is going on for me.

Would that not be even more of a concern than the usual bipolar 2? I mean who wouldn’t want to off themselves after 30 years of witnessing mental illness, knowing exactly what is happening, as it’s happening, seeing it isolate, continually telling yourself to just think positive, and yet not be able to change the pattern?

We are high needs and high return, all the way, all the way. Surrender, integration, repair, rebuild, connect, create, evolve. Deeply.
