i had (and still sometimes have, life is a journey) the same problems. a therapist told me i was living my life at zero or hundred, doing everything at once or nothing at all (not bipolar btw). she told me to try to ride it at 50% for a while, aka not be “bad” but stress about being “good” either (we also worked on removing those labels). eventually you start to balance yourself out

Is there something you can do that brings you joy today, even if it’s only for 30 min or so, that’s not related to food, alcohol, or the TV? Maybe a bath, a short walk, meditation, cooking a healthy meal, reading a book, etc? I’ve found that at least doing one thing a day that’s for my mental health really helps me.
