I was describing my bipolar affects to my father-in-law and how it effects my physical wellbeing.
Me: You know how you hear about the ones that totally loose it and take it out on others- that’s not me. I barely have the strength to get out of bed. You’re safe around me.
(Side note: I’m usually between a 5 or 8 during my lows and my health just falls apart- like old injuries start acting up; aka rib, strange cough, allergies.)
