The English Dictionary definition for ‘identity’ is: the fact of being who or what a person or thing is. Let me introduce you to the other side of it too! Where you can be an ultimate mess, with poor choices in life and unthoughtful of the consequences those lead to, where you are bound to take responsibilities to clean all the mess and you do your best but it’s still not enough. Tough life. And to add up to it people think you do these things on purpose. That is your identity.
It comes and kicks off. So unaware of what causes it. Blood sugar? Chemical imbalance? Psychological? So damn unknown! It walks in, on its own will like a monster from a horrific movie walking towards you and no matter how fast you run, he keeps up with you. You stay in bed and you fight harder to pull yourself physically out but just plain fail to succeed. Two weeks straight.
You battle your extreme highs and your lows, popping in pills; one to stop, one to pull you out of guilt from the irrational behavior, and the last one to put you to sleep. “The sickening silence” accompanied with physically low periods, a terrible friend, an impossible to be around individual. Pretty maniac! The knack of living with it over the years is to make up with intense productivity for one half of the year with bright colors and happy cheerful people around you followed by low energies for the remaining half. To counter it all are the countless couches, the analysis, the electroshock therapy commonly known as ECT’s, the cognitive behavioral therapy and only showing up to the world when you are sure to impress….(on the monster’s set terms) to coin “Life Sorted”
The statistics show, 5.7 million adults are affected annually around the globe. The average age of onset to be 25 years and the lifespan of the individuals with the disorder to be 9.2 i.e., a decade of living with it.
Now know what redefines your identity. The creativity that accounts four times higher to any normal being in any form of art, the keen observant spirit, high levels of empathy and to understand others pain and joys putting on their shoes, the deeper level of intuition and accuracy added up with cathartic, strangely healing capacity for your own self.
The world terms it “Bipolar”

मयखाने के दरवाज़े खुलते हैं अंदर की ओर, हर आने वाला अपनी रूबाई सुनाता है। कुछ गम के साए में मजबूर, कुछ अपनी तन्हाइयों से दूर। हर प्याले में होता है जाम, अपने हरषु के लिए बेताब, किसी का गम गलत करने को, तो किसी
