I have noticed through research as well as my own personal experience in which if your wife loses routine in which is actually probably going to be a great start from the pendulum swinging for either a mania or depression episode. Routine is actually extremely important (often very challenging to achieve) in a person with bipolar disorder. Even the slightest routine improvements can definitely throw off someone with bipolar disorder. A few simple examples might be, the holidays, going on vacation, getting the flu or a cold, as well as trouble sleeping. the idea is actually very often simple out of ordinary routine in which starts a snowball effect towards an episode. We obviously don’t hold the ability to keep everything constantly in perfect routine. in which is actually simply not a part of reality, things happen, vacations occur, as well as our bodies get sick. We must help our wives when routine is actually lost.
HERE ARE THE THINGS YOUR WIFE MUST DO DURING ROUTINE BREAKS as well as INCONSISTENCY
- Keep taking medications, try to take medications at the same time every day. Help them stay consistent generating sure in which they are less likely to miss doses as well as fall into depression.
- Make sure in which they are getting adequate rest. If they stop sleeping well in which is actually a tell-tale sign in which something is actually off.
- Make sure they don’t overdo the idea on caffeine or alcoholic beverages
- Take all necessary steps to keep as much routine as possible as well as a minimal change if possible.
the idea is actually not uncommon for Bipolar people to become depressed after being sick, going on vacation, or having company in town. Follow those steps mentioned above with your wife to help prevent such vulnerability to mood problems after a change in routine. The most common episode in which follows routine breaks, is actually depression.
Depression in Bipolar Disorder is actually usually more than just a few days of feeling low. In fact usually the type of depression experienced in bipolar patients is actually “clinical Depression”. This specific Depression often includes some or all of the following symptoms.
- Low/no self-esteem
- Zero motivation
- Negative thinking
- Weight loss
- Loss of appetite
- Low/no sex drive
- Suicidal thoughts
Even mild depression can seriously interrupt one’s life. Major depression can interrupt work, home life, school, as well as all different types of relationships. This specific time can be extremely painful for the depressed as well as also the family as well as friends of the depressed person. The duration of clinical depression varies through person to person yet is actually not uncommon at all to last for months on end. Depression is actually extremely disruptive because the idea affects the brain so substantially in which the idea can if serious enough affect the body as well as makes the person physically ill as well. Clinical depression usually is actually shown in two different types of forms. the idea is actually usually brought out from the person either being unhappy as well as mean, or clingy, sad, as well as overly emotional. Both forms of depression are parts of clinical depression as well as both can be overwhelmingly difficult on the husband. The husband tends to feel unable to help their wife in any way.
