=>PLEASE FORWARD TO FRIENDS, FAMILY AND LOVED ONES <=
First I wanted to say Welcome to
all our new subscribers. Over the last
24 hours we have gotten up to 2400
NEW subscribers to the bipolar
news and daily.
Okay, let’s jump into today’s topic.
You’re not going to believe this,
but I was actually accused of
being a fraud, because of having
this website for people with
bipolar disorder and their
supporters, because this person
didn’t believe that bipolar disorder
This person actually said that
bipolar disorder is a LIE!
Now, I don’t know if this has
ever happened to you, but I
was stuck between not wanting
to say anything to even defend
myself because it was obvious
that this guy knew absolutely
nothing and I would be wasting
my breath —
and totally telling him off, which
would also probably have been
wasting my breath, since I don’t
think this guy would have listened
to a word anyway – he was too
sure of himself.
But to believe that bipolar
disorder is a LIE?
Then how come 13 million
people in this country have it?
Now I know our government
Isn’t always forthcoming about
a lot of things, but that is their
statistic! And that’s only the
REPORTED cases! I wonder
how many UNREPORTED
cases there are? I wonder how
many people really have bipolar
At any rate, it’s impossible to
believe that the disorder is a lie.
A person who has bipolar
disorder would certainly say that
the disorder is NOT a lie!
And a supporter of a loved one
with bipolar disorder would
definitely not say that the
disorder is a lie!
That’s because you deal with
the disorder day in and day out.
In my courses/systems, I go into
how society looks at bipolar
disorder and that this kind of
thinking is part of the stigma
of the disorder:
SUPPORTING AN ADULT WITH BIPOLAR DISORDER?
SUPPORTING A CHILD/TEEN WITH BIPOLAR DISORDER?
HAVE BIPOLAR DISORDER?
So since I teach about it, you would
think I would be used to it, right?
It still makes me mad that other
people are still so ignorant of the
facts about bipolar disorder.
I have tried so hard to build up
bipolarcentral.com from scratch
and did so much research (taking
9 months off from work) and took
so much time at first to help my mom
and then to help so many other
people with bipolar disorder who
I discovered needed help too, that
I KNOW that bipolar disorder is
Obviously, this man doesn’t have
someone with the disorder, or he
wouldn’t say it’s a lie.
But what do you say to someone
Years ago, when bipolar disorder
first started being diagnosed, I
know someone who got disability
for bipolar disorder in only 90 days.
Recently, I ran into someone who
didn’t get his disability for 3 years,
because by the time he applied for it,
everyone and their brother was
claiming to have the disorder!
It probably took the second guy
3 years to get his disability because
most likely by then some people
were lying about having the disorder
just to get disability.
The point is, that these people
might be lying, but that doesn’t
mean that bipolar disorder itself
is a lie..
See the difference?
Still, I think this guy is way off
base calling bipolar disorder a lie.
Anyone who lives with it KNOWS
that bipolar disorder is NOT a LIE.
