No problem too small or too trivial: bipolar disorder

“No problem is too small or too trivial if we can really do something about it.”
Richard Feynman

I think that in focusing on symptom management it is important to try to focus on small problems that a person can work on. I think that is really important. I know that I had issues mainly with spending and irritability. I am trying my best to work on them. I find medicine is very helpful. I find that talking to a therapist is very helpful.

Meanwhile of course, I love my diet coke, sweets, and I love makeup and Parfum. I am a smoker and that seems to help. I am not going to quit smoking. I love MAC cosmetics. I love wearing black. I love being myself.

Currently I feel it is really important to focus on emotional stability and focusing on doable goals so that I can help myself. I think that I have been trying to do something about working to manage my symptoms of Bipolar Disorder. Honestly I will say that the a Depakote and Buspar and smoking make me feel that my mental illness is a trivial problem so I really don’t pay much attention to it. I know that smoking and medicine are so helpful for me and I feel as if my symptoms are managed from that but still I want to work on solving trivial problems because I think something can be done about them.

Ciao.
