Happy Sunday

Happy Sunday,

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.

  1. Gosh, what an interesting stat re: Bipolar 1 & 2. I’ve recently been thinking about whether I’m somewhere on the bipolar spectrum. My official diagnosis was/is depression and anxiety.

    1. That was my first diagnosis as well. Maybe it just takes time to see the different behavior over time. I still kinda think I’m not bipolar 2 but I’m a quiet borderline. I feel like I connect more with the symptoms. I guess that psychiatrist who sees me for 1 hour in my whole life knows best I suppose. Haha

      1. Haha – yeah, I do sometimes wonder what if I had a completely different psychiatrist. I’m sure they’re all absolutely qualified, but there must be so factors here. And, like you imply, there’s a sliding scale for everything. It’s a tricky business! Most important thing is that we become more self-aware, recognising patterns, habits, etc and moving forward.
