The connection between bipolar disorder and sleep is nothing new. When I was first diagnosed with bipolar disorder my doctor mentioned how important it was to establish a regular sleeping routine. Throughout my life, I have been researching the connection and concluded, sleep disturbances in people with bipolar disorder are present from the beginning. This connection between bipolar and sleep can have a negative impact on your quality of life, and treatment outcomes.
Last week on my Facebook page, I made a post asking people for content idea’s, and the type of content they would like to read. One topic which came up several times was – bipolar and sleep deprivation. So, I’ve put together this content to help you understand the connection between the two.
