PostSubject: What are Triggers and How Do They Affect Bipolar Disorder?   Wed Sep 08, 2010 8:09 pm

Triggers come in many forms-

From the positive, such as:

- a new relationship
- the birth of a child
- a promotion at work
- graduating from college
- an exciting vacation

To the negative:

- sleep changes due to work schedules
- troublesome relationships
- a death in the family
- or most significantly, drug and alcohol abuse. Of all of the triggers, these two are the most detrimental.

Common Bipolar Disorder Triggers:

- Alcohol and drug abuse
- Argumentative, negative and aggressive people (if this describes you, reducing your bipolar disorder symptoms can help with the problem)
- Stressful work- especially work with constantly changing hours
- Travel - especially travel with time zone changes
- Relationship problems
- Non-supportive family members and friends
- Excessive media exposure to stressful world events
- Social isolation
- Medication side-effects
