How’s it going? I have a super important
mistake to tell you about that many
people coping and dealing with bipolar
Before I get started, I must say,
boy it’s sure been a super busy day for
me this past week.
I have been working a ton across
all the businesses that I have. I have
had a lot of problems in one particular
business that I am working to fix.
Yesterday I was getting another car
because my current car had a bunch of
issues. I must say, I learned a ton
about the ins and outs of car dealerships
that YOU could apply to coping and dealing
with bipolar disorder.
That’s right. A bunch of things that I learned
from this car insider, you can directly apply
to helping yourself with bipolar disorder or
helping a loved one.
I am writing it all up and will be sending it
out next week f.ree of charge to you.
Some really powerful stuff. It’s amazing
how what the guy told me about concerning
car dealership applies DIRECTLY to bipolar
disorder. Amazing and I am going to share
with you so don’t worry.
Getting a car is such a scam most of the time
that I seriously wish that I could teach
you everything that I know but this isn’t
the forum to do it because this isn’t a
car buying email service. All I can
say if you have to get a car, be careful!!!
I almost got totally ripped off yesterday.
Anyway, I wanted to jump into a super
important topic with bipolar disorder.
I mean it’s SUPER IMPORTANT. I want
you to read this carefully. It’s
important but simple. But many times
the most simple things are the most
powerful with bipolar disorder. Like
going to bed early at a certain time
every night is simple but powerful
with bipolar disorder.
Anyway, let me tell you a quick story
about something that happen to me.
You might not know or remember but a few
months ago I moved. It was a total night
mare with dealing with the gas people,
the water people, the other people
that all were difficult. Pains in
my rear end.
So the place where I moved to was like
20 minutes away from where I use to be.
I use to go to this bank where I use to
live that was right down the street. The people
were SUPER nice. Anything I needed they helped
me get. They were like friends or partners.
Well I couldn’t go to the old branch because
it was too far away.
BIG BIPOLAR LESSON COMING SOON, PLEASE READ ON
So I went to the new branch. When I first
went to the new branch, people were not
helpful at all. No one was really friendly.
I noticed that the people in the bank only talked
to themselves and not to customers really. It kind
of reminded me a high school group of insiders.
So one day, I went into the drive through to
cash a $20 (twenty) check. I waited 16 minutes
in the drive through. I waited. Finally the lady
said they didn’t have a signature card for me on
file. So then I sent my drives license to show
it was really me and they could look at me,
see who owned the account and connect it all :).
The person came back and said that they had to
get a signature card from my main branch. I was
I drove around and went inside mad and said,
“what the heck, it’s my money.” They gave me
a long story and were kind of mean. Finally
I called the other branch and spoke to the
branch manager I had known for a long time.
She was annoyed and call and told them to
give me my money. She also sent a copy
of the signature card so they would have
it on file.
I was super mad about the entire thing. But
there’s an important bipolar lesson to be
Then another time, I went to the bank. I needed
a deposit slip. I asked if they could make me
some. The guy got mad and kind of threw them at
The final time was when I went there last week.
I went to cash a check. They said they couldn’t
read my signature after 12 minutes in the drive
I went inside super mad and they said sorry.
Then I asked if they could make another check
and I would resign it. The lady said she wasn’t
sure. I took my check and left. I went to
a different branch that was further away
and they handled it.
I decided I am never going to go to that
branch again because they are not helpful
and are never there when I need them.
So what does this all have to do with bipolar
Many times, people with bipolar disorder or
those who are supporters are working with
difficult people they don’t have to.
Let’s talk about the pharmacy for one. Some
pharmacies are great. They are helpful.
They get things done. Their prices are great. They
will call your doctor. They will get things done
fast. They will be there for you when you need
My mom worked with a pharmacy once that was
horrible. They mistreated her. They constantly
took long to fill prescriptions. They wouldn’t
let her know important things about medications.
My dad and I strongly encouraged her to leave.
She did and went to another one 5 minutes further away.
There are EXCELLENT! And then know bipolar disorder
Other people that I hear time and time again
are a problem is bipolar doctors, bipolar doctor’s
receptionists, social workers, therapists and
also vocation job coaches.
I am NOT an attorney, doctor, therapist or other
kind of professional and what I am about to
say is my opinion.
If you are working with someone who is not helpful
at all, is not there for you, gives you a hard
time, doesn’t treat you with respect, you should
consider finding someone else.
For some reason, other the years, my mom worked
with so many different people that were suppose
to be theoretically partners with her and helping
her get better with bipolar disorder and they
were really not anything but totally unhelpful.
My mom kind of felt she was stuck with
bad people. I asked her yesterday why she
always thought that and she said, she just
didn’t know. She said that she never
really thought there were good people out
Some of these people made her situation with
bipolar disorder twice as difficult. After I
started helping her, I started to encourage her
to reevaluate who was good and who was bad.
Just like with my bank. The old bank I went
to was great. The new bank branch was terrible.
They caused me a lot of grief and hassle and
probably would for the rest of my life.
That’s why I am going to a different branch or
will be leaving the bank all together.
In my systems/courses, you notice that I talk
about the importance of finding all different
people that will be important to helping
yourself with bipolar disorder or helping
your loved one.
People like doctors, therapists, financial people,
lawyers, etc. Not only do I say it’s important
but I tell you how to find these people in
my material below.
SUPPORTING AN ADULT WITH BIPOLAR DISORDER?
SUPPORTING A CHILD/TEEN WITH BIPOLAR DISORDER?
HAVE BIPOLAR DISORDER?
I am amazed at how people just don’t try
to find good people or how they sit and
take bad treatment or people who don’t
Good providers or I like to call them
partners are key! They are a partner
in you our your loved one’s success with
There are a bunch of people on my list that
don’t think there are any good people
out there that can help them with bipolar
I hope a few people on my list comment
on my blog about the difference between
good doctors and bad doctors, good bipolar
therapists and bad bipolar therapists,
good bipolar pharmacies and bad bipolar
There’s a huge difference. Don’t get mistreated
like I was at the bank. There is a saying
in the United States–“VOTE WITH YOUR FEET.”
But, make sure you have a plan and
run your plan by your doctor or therapist. Hopefully
you have one of the two that is helpful so
you can get feedback on your plan of finding
someone else if you need to.
So, when you are mistreated find someone who
will treat you like you want to be treated.
ONE LAST THING!
Don’t ever let someone talk down to you
because you have bipolar disorder. This is
another common occurrence with those that
Okay I have to run off to the gym. Catcha you
tomorrow. Have a great day!!!!!
