Bipolar: Do I have it?
The first steps in finding out if a client is bipolar is a medical diagnosis. This can be done by a medical provider with a series of testing covering medical and family health histories. Once the diagnosis is decided, then treatment options can become available.
As a client with bipolar, your provider will discuss treatment options and how to progress, with outcomes and expectations.
Then next steps will be important to the client to maintain:
A daily routine will help keep highs and lows of bipolar to remain as stable as possible for the client. This includes eating at the same time, routine bedtime and getting enough sleep.
Compliance with taking medication routinely is a key in keeping symptoms controlled and maintaining outcomes.
Understanding signs and symptoms of when the client is moving from stable toward depression and mania is important to know.
Understand that changes toward improvement will not be immediately and will take time.
