Navigating Bipolar Disorder in a Loved One

As an 18-year-old woman, I have been struggling to understand and support my family member who has bipolar disorder. It can be challenging to witness their highs and lows, and to know how to best be there for them. I’ve been doing a lot of research and seeking out resources to better educate myself and offer the support they need. It’s not easy, but I’m learning to be patient with both myself and my loved one. If anyone else is going through something similar, know that you’re not alone. It’s okay to feel overwhelmed, but it’s important to keep seeking help and guidance. Together, we can navigate through this and ensure our loved ones feel supported and understood.
