As a 30 year old single woman, from anyone like my friends to people on dating sites use the label Bipolar for any woman that they thought was crazy or didn't get along with or whatever. Every time I hear "I am looking for someone who .....funny...smart...and is not bipolar," it makes me so sad. Those of us that are bipolar have an illness and the labeling of people because they didn't treat you right or you fought with them is not being BIPOLAR.
When I start to see someone, I think about "What if this relationship continues? When am I suppose to tell him? At what part of this relationship will I know that telling him will not run him off, because the word Bipolar is fragrantly thrown around? Will he run or stay and listen to my illness?
I have been thinking about this and I finally am letting it out.
