Starting To Get Used To The Fact That I Am Bipolar.

I have been diagnosed with bipolar 2 months ago, i had what they call a manic phase where i thought i commited a crime and something/someone was coming to kill me. I have never met anyone who has it, it is very hard to explain to people what it is so i don't think i will be mentioning the fact that i am bipolar to those that aren't close.

Now that i have accepted the fact that i am not who i used to be, meeting new people is not getting any easier because something is always reminding me that i am not okay even though i feel much better.

I just hope the manic phase doesn't reoccur, i try to have enough sleep and eat regularly because before i had the manic phase i didn't sleep for 3 nights in a row, i was going to my room to listen to music till morning. It's weird that during those 3 sleepless nights my body was functioning normally, i went to work and uni without any problem and no one noticed anything different. So these days i don't take my music with me when i go to sleep....
