Unfortunately, having a mood disorder can and will cause you to feel alone sometimes. Make yourself happy first. Take care of yourself, eat well, sleep well etc, as much as you can, I know it’s easier said than done, ESPECIALLY mid episodes, but the older I’m getting, the easier it has been, and I accept me for me.
I do still notice how loved ones say that they understand, but there have been times in the past when I used to just hide and isolate myself and cry so no one would hear me. Later on, they’d finally ask me the question, we the mentally ill folks all hate “What’s wrong…” (face palm)
Accept that no one can see the chemical imbalance that is happening in your brain.
That is all.
