i can't distinguish the difference betwen when i'm making myself a martyr and when i have an actual right to be upset. why is society telling me when my crying is reasonable?

Hi ifeelfaint,

Welcome to HealingWell and to the bipolar board. It's true that being unhappy is socially unacceptable -- something we all struggle with as bipolars. I feel for you.

Do you want to introduce yourself and tell us a little bit about your situation?

I know how you feel. Right now I am going through something of that nature with my husband. He hates when I come to tears. But sorry, I am bipolar, and I am also quick to cry anyways :)

You know i understand how you feel. I know my emotions are and can be out of control, so how can i tell an actual slight from my mind created one? Since i can't always tell i have decided to just keep it to myself for a week or more until i am sure one way or the other. Than i talk to my wife about it.
ANd just for a difference, i am hypomanic most of the time, so i am very very very happy. LOL LOL However i have been told that it was unnatural to be happy all the time. eyes What the hey if i have a choice i will chose happy any day of the week. There are worse things to deal with in life than a surpluss of happiness.

I so understand that.  The woe is me thing.  I'm not the crying type though, I'm more anger.  So I'm like talking to God.. is there anything else you want to throw at me?  Like I don't have enough oh my plate .. no.. give me more.  Might as well make me more miserable than I already am.

WOW this just described how I am feeling.  I feel like I am feeling sorry for myself, but it's only b/c I don't get any support from the ppl in my life, mainly my parnter. So no wonder I "feel" for me.  The fact is, we are bipolar, and we experience symptoms (crying, not accepted so well in my home), and that is not our fault. Society is not my friend, but all of you are smile
