Our expert says:
What they mean ( and indeed they know this well from having studied what happened to many thousands of people with similar problems ) is that a potential for Bipolar episodes tends to stay with you through life. Medication and other interventions may make the episodes happen less often, and be less severe, and help you, especially if you colaborate in the treatment, manage to cope well with them and minimise their disruptions.
What this does NOT mean, is relentless pain ; the psychological pain can be reduced and avoided for lengthy periods.
You can learn to be stronger, to handle this problem well, so you can be proud of yourself and others can be proud of you. You can probabluy lead an essentially normal life.
Make certain you are assessed and treated by a good experienced specialist psychiatrist, and discuss your concerns and fears with him / her.
Yes there are times when one feels tired, but the effort is worth it, because YOU are worth it.
