One of the things that have helped me greatly with my PTSD and Bipolar is to have a purpose in life. To have achievable goals that i can focus on when able. It is so easy to do nothing and stay in a loop where everything stays the same, whether you have a disability or not. People generally repeat the same behaviours day after day and never think to do anything about it..

The secret is to take action (as Tony Robbins says). Take action on small goals that are achievable and actually get done. This gives you confidence and the momentum to keep moving forwards towards what you want.

I know that everybody is different, however we all want to matter at some level…to somebody…to ourselves. I truly believe that if you don’t give up on your dreams and keep moving forwards however slow or fast…your life will be going in the right direction. Towards positive achievement.

I can say without question… that this strategy has helped me immensely with my daily PTSD and Bipolar challenges.

I see a lot of people, doing the same old thing without any aspirations or desire to change their routine/life. Then they wonder why they never even have a chance of achieving their dreams. I know it is even harder with a psychological disability, however that is even more of a reason to not give up at being the best that you can be.

I love being an entrepreneur and therapist. It has taken me years to get to where i am now. 3 steps forward and 2 steps back, however with determination it became 3 steps forward and 3 steps back. Now the steps are in forward motion. I’m walking in the right direction for now and enjoying it. In time things will get faster. Eventually it will turn into a jog and then a run. Though if i think smarter. I’ll take the bus and get their faster. You get the idea 🙂

What i am trying to say, is to think outside of the box. Never give up on your dreams. Keep going. Believe in yourself. Ultimately you have to make a start and keep going and you eventually you will be ahead of the rat race.

To me. Disability has another meaning ‘ThisAbility’ sounds the same but is much more empowering.

Post Summary…

In this article from today.com, Jane Weaver and Linda Carroll discuss the life and recent passing of Carrie Fisher who was a shining light for people with mental illness and Bipolar in particular. Diagnosed with Bipolar in her twenties, she embraced her issues head on, and never let it hold her back from being the best that she could be. The following article gives an insight into her life and compassion for others.

The article reads:

Carrie Fisher was a powerful force for lifting the stigma against mental illness. The beloved “Star Wars” actress, who died Tuesday after suffering a heart attack, was courageously open about her lifelong troubles with bipolar disorder, depression and addiction.

In her last “Ask Carrie Fisher” advice column published Nov. 30 in The Guardian, Fisher responded to a question about bipolar disorder, also known as manic depressive illness, from someone named Alex, who asked: “Have you found a way to feel at peace when even your brain seesaws constantly? I can’t see very far down the line from here and I hope that you can give me some insight.”

Fisher’s response was compassionate, kind and characteristically self-deprecating:

“We have been given a challenging illness, and there is no other option than to meet those challenges. Think of it as an opportunity to be heroic — not ‘I survived living in Mosul during an attack’ heroic, but an emotional survival. An opportunity to be a good example to others who might share our disorder. That’s why it’s important to find a community — however small — of other bipolar people to share experiences and find comfort in the similarities.”

Her honesty about her mental illness gave many people hope, said Natasha Tracy, a mental health blogger and author of “Lost Marbles: Insights into My Life with Depression and Bipolar.”

“Carrie Fisher coming out and saying she had bipolar disorder was almost like a bright light for people, showing them that they could achieve their goals even with a mental illness like bipolar disorder,” Tracy told TODAY.”Carrie Fisher never ‘let Hollywood change who she was inside,’ editor says”

“There’s a feeling that all you are is the disorder. You can feel like a freak, like you’re the craziest person in the whole world and then someone comes out and dramatically talks about having bipolar disorder. You can start seeing your own experiences echoed in someone you really identify with.”

Fisher said in interviews that she was told she had a form of bipolar disorder at age 24, but didn’t “accept” the diagnosis until her late 20s, after she had survived a drug overdose and alcohol addiction.

She chronicled her mental health struggles in several books, including her best-seller “Postcards from the Edge.” She was unsuccessfully treated with numerous drugs, including Lithium, until she underwent electroconvulsive therapy for depression.

While promoting her 2011 book, “Shockoholic,” Fisher told TODAY, “There was a hopeless quality going on. I wanted to deal with it.”

As much as Fisher did as a mental health advocate, many people still didn’t realize her battles, Tracy said.

“When I give talks one of the things I generally do is to put up a picture of Carrie Fisher because everyone recognizes her face as Princess Leia,” Tracy told TODAY. “Then I tell them she has bipolar disorder and it’s almost like the crowd gasps when they hear it. They think that no normal or successful person could have such a severe mental illness.”

The article goes on to discuss:

The causes of Bipolar and a family member with manic depression. Concluding with the views of an associate professor of psychiatry Dr. Dean MacKinnon. The article has numerous videos about Carrie that you may find interesting. From Star Wars, interviews and family tributes.

Carrie Fisher made her mark in the world and encouraged those with Bipolar to do be the best that they could be. Showing the world and those with Bipolar that we too can be fearless and achieve our dreams.
