, most likely I have bipolar disorder and have consulted with psychologists and psychiatrists and other therapists, I was given drugs by a psychiatrist for more than 1.5 years and still continuing to this day. It’s just that there is no clear progress from my disease, I still like to be angry, stressed, scared, hallucinating, pensive and significant emotional changes from happy to sad or vice versa. Now I can’t continue my education and only spend days at home and traveling on weekends. How can I live a normal life again? Thank you

Hello,

Thanks for the question. Having a mental health disorder is not easy to treat. Sufferers must undergo medication and therapy consistently so that symptoms can be controlled. Bipolar disorder is a disorder of mood swings that fluctuate and occur drastically so that it interferes with the sufferer's daily life. There are two mood episodes, namely an up or mania phase and a down or depressive phase. The cause of bipolar disorder is not known with certainty but this condition is related to heredity, high stress levels, experiencing a traumatic event in the past, drug abuse, and having a family or relative with the same condition.

After being diagnosed with bipolar disorder, the usual treatment given to sufferers is a combination of medication and psychological therapy. The goal of this treatment is not to cure bipolar disorder but to control the symptoms experienced by the sufferer. Do you not only take medication, do you also have regular check-ups with a psychiatrist and psychologist? Treatment for bipolar disorder must be done on an ongoing basis. If until now your symptoms have not been treated, usually the psychiatrist will adjust the dose of the drug, change the drug, or add a new drug until your complaints can be controlled. In addition, you are also advised to consult a psychologist to undergo psychological therapy. Please try to tell your psychiatrist and psychologist about these uncontrolled symptoms so they can reassess the treatment provided. If necessary, you can consult another psychiatrist to ask for a second opinion regarding the treatment given. In addition, please you also stay away from the consumption of alcohol and illegal drugs. Try to keep yourself busy by doing activities that are positive and that make you happy. Don't forget to also get closer to your family and those closest to you so that you have moral and social support.

Hope this information is useful.
