This topic has been difficult for me to talk about, but I was diagnosed with Bipolar II disorder back in January (about 6 months ago). Bipolar II means that I get hypomanic episodes, in which I get super hyper, excitable, racing thoughts, difficulty staying on one subject, etc (but never a full manic episode where I would hallucinate, etc). I am currently pescatarian, but during my "hypomanic" states, I've been much better about being vegan. However, I've only made it for as much as 2 months. When I hit the depression episodes I go back to being pescatarian and eating junk food all over again. I'm not exactly sure what I want out of posting this, but I really want to be vegan for my own values, yet I know that realistically I always stop trying once depression hits. Does anyone else struggle with their own depression and how they are able to actually stay vegan when their minds are really just craving anything to make them feel good? (I can't exactly explain why non-vegan foods make me feel "good" when I'm in a bad mood, but I definitely just want cheese and junk food). My bipolar also comes with anxiety, so it's super hard for me to talk to others about my veganism. I really only rely on my husband who is an omnivore but still cares about/respects my desire to be vegan. It makes going out or going to friends' houses really hard for me. Basically I'm hoping for any advice in this matter?
