What Does Recovery Mean to You?
People often have a different idea of what “recovery” means in relation to bipolar disorder.
Some think of it as no longer needing to take medication or see a doctor or therapist. Others may think of it as regaining control of their lives with medication, therapy, lifestyle changes, and/or other approaches. Some people don’t view bipolar as an illness (they may even view it as a gift) and seek lifestyle changes as a way of accommodating their extreme highs and lows.
