Our expert says:
Bipolar doesn't usually kill us. Indeed, it can be more like seasickness, which doesn't kill anyone, but can make us fel so awful we wish it would.
Your psychotherapist ought to be using a CBT approach, to helping you find the purposes in living, and how to remain usefully active even when depressed. And how to vope with uncertainty - life is always uncertain ; it's just that with some conditions, we are more aware of that degree of uncertainty.
I doubt we will find, or should be looking for a CURE for Bipolar - medicine actually very rarely CURES things ; but there are new and improved treatments being developed steadily, and CONTROL of such disorders is becoming more practical and more achievable. We need to learn the art of living with whatver disorders life produces for us, rather than expecting to be totally without disorder ( actually a very rare situation ).
