I wonder a lot about my future. What will my Bipolar look like in 5 years? 10 years? 20 years? Will it get better or worse? Will it stay the same? Will I be able to handle the job that I want?
I specifically worry about my memory. I have moments where I forget what I’m doing in the middle of it. This morning I had to pause and search my brain to remember what my best friend looked like. Now that’s a little scary.
My therapist continually tells me that my symptoms will lighten up as the years pass, but I keep seeing some articles that say the opposite. I don’t know. My future feels uncertain and I don’t like that.
Regardless, I have to remember…
I will do as much as I can for as long as I can and that will have to be enough.
