Bipolar Treatment

Journaling, keeping a journal about my bipolar 2 thoughts, allows me to freely express myself without fear of judgment or backlash.
How did you get on the right routine of bipolar medication? This is a question I get on a daily basis.
When diagnosed with bipolar 2 disorder, I was skeptical about taking bipolar medications. If I had diabetes, I would not hesitate to take insulin. If I had the flu, I would take antibiotics with ease. So why was I hesitant to take bipolar medication?
