For those who are diagnosed as bipolar or know someone who is. How did you find out? Did something happen that made you realize you needed to seek a professional. Just curious because I think someone really close to me is bipolar but wont admit to it.

We need to fight for more funding. I have a mentally ill family member that refuse to take meds . The current laws give mentally ill people the right to refuse treatment until they kill or harm . I question the Law makers mental state .

Same. My diagnosis is iffy. They are debating now Btwn bipolar and major depression with psychotic features.   Who's knows. Anyway, the way I was diagnosed is I had lost my mind litterally.   I was manic as hell in 2011. I barely slept or I was on a crash and I slept all the time.   I wasn't able to function in everyday life like I got to the point where I couldn't do my job.   Then on other weeks I'd be so efficient that I could do my job and my co-workers together.   Well after a lot of that I became psychotic. Like paranoid as fk.   I thought ppl were out to get me.   I thought I was being followed. I thought my co-workers were harassing me.   I ended up in a hospital. So I don't know what my diagnosis really is bc my symptoms kinda cross over. Honestly, I joke and say I'm depressed, bipolar, and scizophrenic bc at different times I was diagnosed with all three depending on my symptoms at the time lol. I'm a crazy chic know this lol. Seriously though the same medicines is used to treat all of them though so I guess it doesn't matter. I ended up loosing my job behind being hospitalized and my life has been pretty sh*tty since I "lost it.". I don't blame anyone that doesn't want to be labeled with this ish.

Treatment is not just medication but residential facilities with board certified doctors.

CuteNSweet, thanks for sharing

I hate it when people stigmatized mental illnesses

We wouldn't stigmatized diseases like cancer or we'd feel like jerks. Too bad we can't feel the same way about diseases of the mind
