How’s it going?
Hope you are doing well.
I am so annoyed, I have a leak in my bathroom.
It’s the craziest thing. It started out as a drip
and now it’s a steady stream of water.
Anyway, I have to go quick today and
get it fixed.
Also, two people asked some really
good questions yesterday on my blog.
Graham N said…
I am curious.
You often mention your great staff and how most
of them are Bipolar or have some other mental
illness. I presume they all have episodes at
some time or other, hopefully not all at the
same time! (Or do they? Does the episode of
one trigger similar in another?)
How do you manage this kind of situation?
How often does it happen?”
“Like Graham, I am also interested in how your
staff might feed off of each other when having
episodes as that happens within our family
with different bipolar people.
Also, I read your postings for supporters
everyday and notice that you appear to have a
tremendous amount of energy and a variety of
activities that you are personally involved in.
Do you have a wife and children — a family of
your own? Anyone other than your mother with
And, doesn’t your very active life
have an effect on any of your bipolar staff/family?
It has been my experience with both of the individuals
who have bipolar in my family that any type of
over-activity can stimulate an episode in them.
Please address this for your readers. Thanks.”
I will be addressesing these questions in a featured
article that I will post really soon.
Okay, here’s today’s headline:
THE BIPOLAR DISORDER “CHIP” REVEALED!
You know the old saying about a “chip
on your shoulder” and about someone
Well, first let’s talk about what it means
before we talk about someone having one
or not, ok?
So what do we mean when we say that
someone has a chip on their shoulder?
We mean that they have something
bothering them that never goes away.
This can even lead to a bad attitude,
that other people can see, if they’re
The point is that it’s something that
they carry around with them. Some-
thing that they still haven’t worked
out. A burden, you could say.
Like a trigger to a bipolar episode,
that lays beneath the surface until
it’s aggravated, and then it goes off.
That’s the bipolar chip!
See, there are some people who have
bipolar disorder that walk around with
a bipolar chip on their shoulder. Who
have let the disorder become a burden
Who may even walk around with a
bad attitude, or a victim mentality
because of the bipolar chip on
But you see, you don’t HAVE
to walk around with a chip on
your shoulder, especially a bipolar
If you have bipolar disorder, and you
have read my courses, you know that
you should have a support system,
and a good support system is there to
help you, to keep that bipolar chip OFF
SUPPORTING AN ADULT WITH BIPOLAR DISORDER?
SUPPORTING A CHILD/TEEN WITH BIPOLAR DISORDER?
HAVE BIPOLAR DISORDER?
Having someone help you, like a good
supporter, will help to make your burdens
lighter, and will help keep you from
having a bipolar chip on your shoulder.
Then your burden is lighter, and you
can concentrate on the things you
should be concerned about – like
managing your disorder!
Someone with bipolar disorder who
does NOT have the bipolar chip on their
shoulder is one of those who it’s harder
to tell that they even have the disorder.
