Hope you are having a great day.
I wanted to talk today about the importance of two things.
1. If you have bipolar disorder you should have an agreement with a supporter that if you become unstable you will want that person to do what it takes to get you into treatment.
2. If you are a bipolar supporter and even if you don’t have this agreement, you should do whatever it takes to get someone into treatment.
People forget that with bipolar disorder lots of people take their own lives. Lots of people do terrible things. It’s almost always because a person was NOT taking their medication and they had no system or method to get stable again. They had no supporters.
I have a woman named Michele who works for me who has bipolar disorder. She had a sister who also had bipolar disorder. Notice I said HAD. She HAD bipolar disorder. That’s because she killed herself. That’s right – she committed suicide because even though she had supporters, including her sister Michele, she went off her bipolar medication.
So when I stress that people with the disorder stay on their medication, it’s not for my sake, it’s for theirs!
And when I stress that supporters do whatever they have to do to make sure that their loved ones stay on their medication to make sure that they DON’T take their own lives, I am serious about it!
WARNING – DON’T LET THIS HAPPEN TO YOUR LOVED ONE! DO WHATEVER IT TAKES – OR ELSE!
In my courses/systems below:
SUPPORTING AN ADULT WITH BIPOLAR DISORDER?
SUPPORTING A CHILD/TEEN WITH BIPOLAR DISORDER?
HAVE BIPOLAR DISORDER?
I stress the importance of taking medication to control and manage bipolar disorder. Now, hopefully, you understand why.
I have been accused (usually by people with the disorder who are NOT taking their medication) of supporting the drug companies. Now you understand that I am not. I am only concerned with you and your loved one and that they stay alive!
PLEASE take this warning seriously and don’t let your loved one be like Michele’s sister?
