I am sitting here this morning thinking how amazing it is at how little I know about Bipolar Disorder. When I try to learn about it it becomes too much and I swear causes more of a depressed feeling in me than if I didn’t read up on it at all. I cannot figure out if it would be better to read into it more or just go about taking my medication as directed and making sure I make all of my appointments.
Then there is this talk of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I don’t have the funds to see a therapist, but I have heard about self-help books that work with it and I am wondering if that would be an OK substitute. But I am also wondering how much CBT really works for something like Bipolar Disorder. Hell, for all I know CBT was made for Bipolar Disorder and some of you more educated readers are thinking, “Wow, this chick really doesn’t know shit.” It’s OK, I can take it.
So I am going to head to the library shortly — wish me luck!
