My friend that I have known for over twenty years just passed away. She was murdered. I am very shaken up over this. My heart aches for her family and her three year old daughter. When a tradegy happens and having bipolar, I have to watch for symptoms. My body does not heal compared to a typical person.
My other friends are handling this well and now we wait for a suspect. I also have OCD. Right now the negative and obssessive thoughts seep in. I try to rediect my thoughts by thinking of the good times and the wonderful memories I have of her. Now is the time to see my therapist to help me cope with her death.
