Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Bipolar disorder is a psychiatric disorder in which a person experiencing it can have very drastic mood changes, especially when not properly treated.
Being someone who treats someone with bipolar disorder is indeed something that is not easy, and there are some suggestions you can try to deal with it such as:
Improve your knowledge of bipolar disorder so that you can provide a response that is more in line with the mood changes experienced by the patient you are caring for
No need to always give advice, just listen carefully to all complaints or stories told by the sufferer. Also avoid responding to their stories with arguments or topologies that can trigger their emotions to increase excessively
Keep supporting the sufferer, especially when he is in a depressive phase to make him feel that he has someone who is always by his side, do not try to encourage him to do or change something in him
Continue to support the sufferer in undergoing the therapy he lived
Make certain plans to deal with the surge in excess emotions from the sufferer
Try to understand all the reasons why the sufferer experiences emotional / mood changes and still support them
Keep paying attention to your own needs and health
Stay patient and optimistic in caring for and facing people with bipolar disorder
If you feel the action taken by the sufferer has been very excessive and you or others who are around him now are unable to deal with it, immediately contact the nearest psychiatric hospital to help deal with the sufferer
I hope this helps.
