    Shifting moods can make forming and maintaining relationships complicated. From an external perspective, the outside person often only sees a person who is indecisive and sometimes irrational. From the inside, a person may not even notice their changes and it can leave them wondering why it is so hard for people to understand me? The net result can be loneliness and isolation. I have experienced periods of elation changing to bouts of depression. The rate of this change can be very quick and confusing. Without medications and people who are aware of my disorder, I often feel as though I am drifting away into isolation. Friends and family play an important role in recovery and recognition of my symptoms.
