Sick Mind, Sick Body (round and round we go)

May is Mental Health Awareness Month.

I notice when I am physically sick, say a sinus infection, it gets worse and worse. (Which I guess the same can be said for any Bipolar episode, whether depression, hypomania or anxiety.)

Back to physical illness. Sinus Infection becomes sinus infection, cough, bronchitis, higher fevers, nausea, etc, over three weeks, for example, as I am experiencing now.

A friend and I agree, seems those with Bipolar are sick for a longer period of time, and it’s terribly difficult to recover.
