Back to the basics part 4

So what causes you, or trigger, to have a bipolar episode? A trigger is an environmental, biological, or situational factor that causes symptoms of the disorder. Lack of sleep, very stressful situations, and trauma are just a few. By figuring out your triggers you get a little bit more control over the illness. It will help you manage your disorder.

Some of my triggers are lack of sleep appetite on if I ate or what I ate, and stressful situations.

  1. I’m still trying to figure out my triggers, but lack of sleep and stressful situations (particularly school) are big ones for me. I also need to exercise to keep my moods in check
