I have just in the last month been diagnosed bipolar although now that I have read everything I can get my hands on I realize I have been BP all of my life. My daughter, who is 32 is also BP and she was dx about
5 yrs ago. I have lost a really good friend who just didn't understand my last crash (it was at work) and I almost lost my job. I feel humiliated because all my coworkers now just think I'm plain "Crazy" No one wants to take the time to understand my disease and I work with NURSES.
