I have to share a really sad story. There
was a person that got my bipolar supporter
course for supporting adults. The one
He said that he was really excited about
it. Unfortunately his wife, who has bipolar
disorder found out about it and pressured
him to ask for a refund.
Don’t get me wrong, I am not upset about
the refund. That makes no difference to me. I
feel bad this person is going to suffer because
anytime he tries to take action, his wife prevents
My mom use to do the same exact thing for DECADES.
I can remember so many times, that we didn’t do so many
normal family things because my mom was in an episode
and didn’t want to.
For example, I rarely ever saw my dad’s side of the family because
my mom would get all mad so my dad stopped taking us there.
He felt it was easier to just “appease” her than it
was to do what was right.
Let me tell you one thing. Do NOT let bipolar
disorder episodes rule your family. I was talking to
my dad over the last few days and he finally
realized the mistake he made for almost 40
years–he let my mom’s bipolar disorder
control the family.
It proved to be a multi decade disaster.
I really felt bad for the guy asking for
the refund. He was pressured to not
learn about the disorder and help
himself, his wife and his family.

In my courses at:
SUPPORTING AN ADULT
SUPPORTING A CHILD/TEEN
HAVE BIPOLAR DISORDER?
Virtually all the people interviewed
both those with bipolar disorder and
supporters say this was a big mistake.
They said NOT to allow Bipolar Episodes
to control life.
I totally agree. I believe it’s a grave mistake to allow
bipolar episodes to run the show so to speak.
For my dad, mom and my family, it cost
jobs, relationships with many
family members, lots of money, etc.
Well I have to run. Before I go,
I almost have the websites setup for the
job descriptions that I will be offering and
how you or someone you know can apply for them.
Have a great day.
