How to get relief from bipolar using music, meditation and meds.


Hi Bbqdad here.

I have bipolar 1 disorder and PTSD.

For 40 years I lived untreated and could not find any relief for my symptoms because I was stubborn and didn’t believe my diagnosis. Three years ago I had severe manic episodes that lasted for 6 months. The result was that I was hospitalized and received treatment. Now, I am stable and want to help others that have the same journey.

This blog will talk about how I get relief from bipolar and PTSD.

The site is divided into the following categories:

  • 420 – anything to do with cannabis including making magic brownies

  • Bipolar – stories of my life that highlight unmedicated symptoms

  • Life – stories of hope and overcoming mental illness

  • Meditation – mindfulness and relief for symptoms like anxiety

  • Meds – prescription and nonprescription (cannabis)

  • Music – my music, artists with bipolar, songs that depict bipolar or mental illness

  • Resources – online support groups, virtual yoga, suicide hotline and other helpful tools

I wrote some music that details the journey I have been on and my worst moments with symptoms of bipolar and PTSD.

It asks, “How do I leave me?”
