I'm bi-polar

I know I suffer from Bi-polar disorder and I cannot bring myself to tell my family or friends.

I am the strong, successful, supportive, caring and solid person in our family.

There is always something happening : someone dies, another someone dies, someone gets married, has an alcahol problem, has a baby or confesses to being depressed! There is never a good time to tell them. Because they are always occupied with someone elses drama.

And I know, that even though I love to convince myself 'there is never a good time', I will never ever tell them, even if there were a good time.

So I will be bi-polar, and at times feel like I would rather die than be this sad. For ever.

  • Are you on any medication? Maybe you don't have to tell your family if you could just get your symptoms under control with medicine. I hope everything goes well for you. Being Bi-Polar runs in my family, so I know what you're going through.
