All the abilities and coping skills that didnt develop properly becouse of my substance abusing, will I get them if remaining sober for a looong time?

Yes, but not by UPS: Good for you! Yes, stay sober for a looong time (maybe a bit of healthy wine/beer will be ok). But those lost years and the abilities/skills won't just come in a delivery truck. You need to develop them and you can. Even if you were older - but you're not. It will be ok. Plants usually catch up if planted late in our garden. Stay on track. Good luck. ...Read more

Could you tell me what are good coping skills for bipolar disorder?

Could you tell me what are good coping skills for bipolar disorder?

I like your question: I often tried to help my bipolar type patients try to find ways to cope. We'd attempt to get a good sense of their usual pattern or rhythm and predict the weeks that were likely to be up or down and plan optional activities with that in mind. Also, if not smoothed out by medication, i urged them to remember that downs would be temporary - to wait it out. No permanent solution to temporary problems. ...Read more
