Hi everyone!  I was wondering does anyone esle have the same problems?  People will say you do not act like you are bipolar.  I wonder what am I suppose to look like.  My friend saw me one night when she was staying all night taking my meds.  She told me you are on too me meds,  we need to get you off all those meds.  I told her these meds help me live somewhat a normal life.  I thought to myself, you really don't want tol see me off of my meds.  Sure I don't want to take all this,  but it helps me to get along everyday.  I told her I am always on the edge of a episode.  What do people expect people with bipolar to look like?

We just talked about this in my bipolar meeting last night.  I still want to know what someone with bp looks like because I get the same thing when people find out "you don't look bp", and I just want to know y someone would tell you to get off those meds.  It just upsets me because just like you I am so much different off meds.
