A life of a person having bipolar personality disorder ain't an easy life.Living with mood swings at all the times,fighting with the good and bad that exist in the mind, having to take heavy medications and living up to society rules.All said and done bipolars are human too and they too have feelings, must say more than normal people.They have dreams and aspirations too.Heavy medications and facing family and friends for a bipolar person is one difficult task.Family and friends and acquaintances should be very cordial and understanding as it's the most important moral support for a person suffering the disorder.There are many people with bipolar who are working people too.If one knows a person is suffering from bipolar, it clearly explains the behaviour of the person.For some who are not aware of people suffering the disorder,it might seem like the person is either weird or having a lot of attitude as the mood swings are the main cause in this disorder.At one moment a bipolar person will be hyper and excitited and will say all the good things and the next moment you can be ready for a shock as the bipolar person can either throw tantrums and get difficult or go extremely in depression and become quiet.It is a very tacky situation for an onlooker as bipolar people can look very poised and comfortable on the outside.It is their minds that play games with them.
Being a bipolar has it's own positive sides too. People with the disorder are very creative,loving and affectionate as their heart and body's go through a lot of thoughts and feelings.One must encourage such people to pursue their dreams as they need a lot of motivations and appreciations.Since they go through a lot of mood swings their relations with family and friends is not so much up to the mark.Not all people can understand them at all times.It is my personal feeling that one can help oneself.Mood swings and anger can be controlled as it's all in the mind.It can be controlled well in a lot of ways!
1) Taking the prescribed medications
2) Seeing a psychiatrist from time to time

9) Having a pet dog or a cat really helps

Nothing is “IMPOSSIBLE! The word impossible itself if given space is spelt as,”IM POSSIBLE”! A bipolar person has to tame their two minds with positive thoughts,and get it in harmony with each other.Understanding that the minds go through some chemical imbalances, one must accept the reality and not be a slave to their minds.One must pursue their dreams and truly believe in themselves, having the self confidence by trying and putting efforts in what one likes.Be it any hobby or an inbuilt talent one has to give it a try by channelising ones energy in the right direction.Sucess is a blend of hard work and good time invested.
