I hate the fact that people think they need to fix me all the time.  I am not broken.  I have bipolar.  I have found that since I have owned my illness I am more in control.  I take my meds.  I don't always agree with the doctors and I fight for what I need to feel better.  After all who knows better than me what I am going through. Its taken me 20 years to get to this point.   When I am having a "moment" when I am either up or down I  find that instead of fighting it I accept that its going to be a bad day and I have put in place things that help me deal with it.  I have become selfish in that I will not allow anyone to put me in positions where I feel uncomfortable and I have booted out all people who don't add value to my life and dont accept me as I am.  Its empowering to just not accept everyone elses poop.  I think we have enough poop of our own without having to deal with everyone else's.  Its hard enough to get through a day sometimes without having some people make it harder. 
I know that in that moment when it feels like its all going too fast or when I cant face the world, this too shall pass, and it does.  Never let anyone tell you what you should be or how you should act of feel.   
Like I said I am not broken!

That's inspiring....I often feel like I'm broken, somehow pieced together by whatever strength I somehow possess. It's all I have to keep moving forward sometimes. I know how love it is my greatest strength and thru it, I know there are great things I am capable of.... It is my light in the dark. I'm new to the bipolar diagnosis, but not the ups and downs that come with it. I hope someday to know the peace you do.
