The Holiday Tune-Up, re-post

Happy Holidays

For the holiday season, I'm excited to share a piece with you by my friend, Lisa Triche. Lisa lives a bountiful life that includes managing bipolar disorder. I asked her to share a short story to shine a light on how hard it can be for loved ones living with a mood disorder to face the holiday season. She also identifies warning signs that might indicate trouble is brewing and methods she uses to cope and to keep herself on track. For family members, this is an inside perspective on thoughts and feelings that are sometimes hard for our loved ones to share with us.

She writes, "I tell you this story because like the family reunion that summer, the holiday season is approaching and it’s even worse. It’s 'Hurricane Season.' For people with mood disorders, such as myself, the holidays are comparable to high school reunions, yet with more at stake."
