How Will Having Bipolar Disorder Affect My Plans?

Question: How will having bipolar disorder affect my future plans?

Answer: Millions of people with bipolar disorder live full and productive lives. The key to doing so is to follow the physician's advice. Remain on your medications, make sure you comply with your counseling, and most importantly, avoid stressor. In particular, avoid excessive use of drugs and alcohol.

We know that excessive alcohol use is a common trigger for both episodes of depression and mania. So it's important that we limit that use to a moderate level of intake.
