How do people feel about having bipolar? As much as I accept what I have, it is still hard to live with the stigma of it. I know that I shouldn't let the stigma of having bipolar bother me, but it does. It is something that I feel I have to keep hidden from everyone, and only tell those that are closest to me.
There are things that don't have a stigma but are medically much harder to live with. Even having diabetes is something that you would have to think about every time you eat or excercise. I am on one medication, and have to take a few pills at night. Otherwise my life is completely normal. So, maybe I shouldn't even complain about what I have. I have managed fine for about four years. I just keep wondering when I will stop thinking about what I have constantly. But maybe that is something personal that I will just have to work on.
