When You ’ re Struggling with Self-Loathing in Bipolar Disorder
Many people with bipolar disorder struggle with self-loathing. Maybe the self-loathing starts as the depressive phase does with all sorts of awful thoughts about yourself. Because that’s how depression works: It outright lies, and inflicts pain. You can’t do anything right. You’re an abject failure. You’re also stupid. And worthless, and no one will ever really love you for you. You are not attractive or thin or strong enough. You are weak, and you are an embarrassment. Maybe it happens after a manic or hypomanic episode, because you feel terrible about what you did or said during th...

Sound advice: why rockstars are my guiding light
Therapy helps in a crisis. But when it comes to lessons in life, music has most of the answersWhen my marriage dissolved a decade ago, I went to a cognitive therapist to see if I could make sense of it.

Although delivering my opinion about what had happened out loud without shouting was an enjoyable relief, I can ’t say I truly learned much. We decided I wasn’t such a bad person. We decided my ex-wife wasn’t a bad person either. Then I paid my £60 and arra...
