I hope everyone is doing well. Today is a laid back day. The sun is shining. It’s an alright day. I read this recently
“According to a 2002 study by Lewis L. Judd and colleagues at the University of California at San Diego published in the Archives of General Psychiatry, people with bipolar I experience depression three times as often as mania. For bipolar II, the ratio of time spent in depression versus mania is a whopping 40:1.”
I think this study is absolutely accurate. I’m mostly in states of depression. I hardly experience hypomanic episodes. I haven’t charted out my hypomanic episodes due to it being such a new diagnosis for me. I was first diagnosed with Major Depression and anxiety.
