I was diagnosed bipolar two years ago and ever since my family has blamed any and i mean any emotion or concern i have as just part of my disease. This is frustrating infuriating and hurtful. Does anyone experience this or know the best way to express to them that this isnt correct. I am well balanced on good meds a great psych dr and wonderful therapist they consider me doing awesome yet my family looks at me like i am a bomb or icky or something.
