I know that due to my bipolar that I am more emotional to things and feel more deeply about everything.My son was in a car accident- he was not hurt thank God. The thing is I my heart is hurting so bad for him that he had to experience that and that he saved so hard for this car.He put all his love and attention into it and is really upset that it is gone.He was really grateful that no one was hurt and that it was not as bad as it could of been.He was really concerned for everyone but now that the shock has worn off he is really hurting to have lost something that meant a lot to him. I can't make the pain in my heart stop for him and wish I could make it all better and I know I can't.We both agree it is just a thing and that everyone being ok was the most important thing, but I feel his hurt so much that I just feel sick to my stomach. I want to go back and change it for him. How do you deal with the over reaction of emotions to things. I have always been that way and sometimes it wipes me out when I know that it is just everyday living.I keep telling myself that he is fine and I know he is but it is his emotions that I feel for him and it is almost like I take it more deeply than I should.I sometimes hate the over emotions and all that goes with it.Well thanks for listening I feel a little better for being able to share with people who understand the lovely side of emotional bipolar.
