Focusing on Not Making My Bipolar Disorder Worse

Judging My Bipolar Disorder Disability

I judge my bipolar disorder disability. I admit it. I do. I wish I didn’t. I wish I were more Buddhist. I wish I could show more enlightenment in this way. But I judge how disabled I am by my bipolar disorder and I just don’t know how not to.
