Hard for me to imagine the increased complication(s) bipolar would add. Low sugar alone can trigger feelings not-so-positive. Finding the "right" health provider is a big key. Someone who both understands and sympathizes with your situation. I have been a type 1 (I have no idea what the letters after that could mean)for more than sixty years. Started, as a child with a doctor who never smiled, scolded and informed me before I was ten that I might live to see thirty. Now I am sixty-six and quite healthy. I have a physician who laughs, a nurse-educator who has led me to this group, treatment for thyroid deficiency which aided the depression that I was experiencing. Identify the strong, happy person that you are and will be for your family and friends, and when it just doesn't seem that way identify that the chemicals are "off" and that your task is to get them right.
There are a lot of generous people here who will help with any negative feelings or thoughts. You can get this right and we can help.

kelly, welcome to tu, this is such a great site for support, i hope that you are getting treatment for your bipolar as it is generally responsive to therapy. there is a lot of bipolar in my family, ironically we used to connect getting treatment for bipolar like a diabetic needing insulin, no stigma your body just needs the medicine. well now my son is diabetic and i see the connection is not so clear as diabetic management is so much more complex than popping a lithium everyday. in any case, i hope you find your way to your inner strength, start by looking in your daughters eyes and also your own. you have more resolve and strength than you realize. try taking one moment at a time having faith that if today feels very heavy tomorrow or next week or next month there will be light. sending your healing energy and comfort. amy
