From running marathons and taking the stairs at office, to eating less food, we usually try it all. But I keep hearing many stories of patients with bipolar disorder who are suffering from poor body image and almost losing faith in themselves because nothing seems to work.
I have been in the deep end of the pool myself, and I know what each one of you might be feeling right now. But we all need to keep hope.
