Whats your honest thoughts when you find out someone you know is BiPolar?
I am Bipolar 1. Sometimes I feel as though my family and friends maybe view me differently.
I wonder if they are among the thousands of normal people who were diagnosed with a mental disorder they don't have.
Then I wonder what they'd like for lunch, lol.
i imagine we all are subject to varying degrees of mental diagnoses.
If I find out someone I know is Bipolar I make an effort to love both extremes (and all the stuff in between). We are all bipolar if you think about it. Some blame it on alcohol. Others, point to depression or hormone imbalances. Some seek medical help. But most of us just acknowledge that life is frequently one extreme after another. The extreme stuff makes life interesting, so I say hug you Bipolar friends often!
Well if it is the person that has BiPolar that let's me know they have it . I am like oh my here we go.I don't want to set for a hour and listen to someone tell me what they have. Not all people are they same.I mean I think I have bipolar to some point. LOOK I am online talking to the dang screen. I get mad on here and I laugh hard at other time's reading what has been posted.So who is to say they are crazy. Trippin' a little we all are I think.
It's human nature for people to treat others differently or behave differently around them when they "know" they have been diagnosed with something.
Sometimes it may lead people to have more patience or cut you some slack under circumstances they normally would not have without your diagnosis.
Other people may think you use BiPolar as an "excuse" for any erractic behavior you display and therefore they may elect to spend less time around you. They don't want to deal with any "potential drama".
In the end you have to accept that you are who you are.
You take your meds and do the best you can.
With experience you should be able feel a change coming on. This will help to keep (you) from being caught off guard.
Life is too short to be trying to read other people's minds or to be too worried about what they think.

If your friends were willing to reveal their true thoughts about you, would you be OK with that?For example, could you handle hearing that you are arrogant and self-serving, even though you think you are tolerant and open-minded? (Just one example among many.) Mind you, these are...
