It's Bipolar Awareness month. Joining my team in supporting those with Bipolar and putting an end to the stigma.
I don't bring it up often, but Yes I do in fact have Bipolar Illness. Sometimes it's something I embrace and other times when my depression is deep I wonder if it's a curse. Yet I know I am wonderfully and fearfully made, so I am the way God meant me to be. I have Bipolar and I am beautiful and so are all my friends and team mates on Bipolar Mania & Christian Women with Depression and family members that have it.
I know that some days are better than others, but Bipolar Illness does not have to overtake me. I have friends and support. I am very blessed in that way.
If you know anyone with Bipolar or suspect someone who may have it...take the time to
them, love them, be a little more understanding and more than anything stop the stigma. Share your cares and concerns with them. EDUCATE YOURSELF!!
KNOWLEDGE IS POWER and CAN stop the stigma if you allow yourself to learn.
Embrace the illness and remember that you are beautiful!
