Why is it that manic depressive / bi-polar people think they're special?

I don't like how certain people think it's some sort of joke.

People love their bipolarity.. Doctors love to prescribe lithium and zoloft c*cktails.

Are you happy or sad right now?

G&B- I don't think I'm special. And I hate being Bi-polar. It sucks to always have to analyze your thoughts to make sure you stay close to reality.

Miss-spawn, I'm depresed right now.

Is it always happy or sad, no inbetween?

Are we supposed to ask questions about your manic depression?

Do you think it aids your creativity?
At what age did you figure it out?
Were you reluctant to get treatment due to a fear that treatment would damage your creative abilities, and due to a belief that you would undergo any sort of unhappiness for that sort of creative ability?

Do you believe the label's really necessary?

When you are at you high peak is it like you're on a drug?

TangledLace,
1. It can be about anything you want.
2. It does help me make unusual connections.
3. About 22 years.
4. I was reluctant to get help until about 6 months ago. I tried self medication and denial for the longest time.
5. The label helps me to be honest with myself.

Are you on dial up?
15 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Monday 4/18/05 - 5:20:04 AM EST (GMT-5)
I don't mean you.. I was asking if you knew the answers to / had opinions of my questions.. I didn't mean it personally, sorry.

Cable modem. Faster than a T1 connection.

Why were you reluctant to get help? Fear that it would injure your creative abilities?

Do you feel the label gives you security and a feeling of understanding, or do you have more a feeling that it shoves you in a box and denies you individuality?

15 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Monday 4/18/05 - 5:24:04 AM EST (GMT-5)
I didn't take it personally. Everyone experiences Bi-polar differently. I find it helps me if I talk about it to complete strangers.
15 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Monday 4/18/05 - 5:25:19 AM EST (GMT-5)
Were you afraid treatment would damage your creative abilities?
How did you deal with those fears?

if i ask anything too personal, tell me and i'll stop.

15 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Monday 4/18/05 - 5:25:46 AM EST (GMT-5)
I didn't want to get help because I was afraid it would change the person that I am. It has changed me, I think. But I have trouble defining exactly how.
15 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Monday 4/18/05 - 5:27:06 AM EST (GMT-5)
Maybe it was me that took it personally, then.
They diagnosed me with 'manic depressive illness' over 10 years ago after realizing I wasn't adhd or ocd.. Lamers.. I told them I wasn't, but they wouldn't listen.

So, at age 12 I had to take all sorts of pills and go to group / teen therapy.. I hated it there.. And I hate most when people think it's a joke.. Or like it's 'cool' or something.. Ugh.. Very irritating.

Ask anything you want. I have a very thick skin. I put myself out in the open in journals so I would have to think about what I am doing. I was starting to dwell on the negatives too much.

do you smoke pot?
15 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Monday 4/18/05 - 5:29:36 AM EST (GMT-5)
I like Manic Depressive as a title better than Bi-polar. It's more descriptive. Like any illness, people have a hard time understanding it if they don't experience it.

I missed this earlier-"When you are at you high peak is it like you're on a drug?"
A very good analogy. I get excited, talk fast, feel like I'm on speed.

Some times I worry about being bi-Polar. Would you say it's worth getting my self checked out.

I am very depressed at times, but I'm afraid that if I get checked out are all over happy to make you as having a problem. If I have a problem I want to know it's legit. I also fear that medication will make me someone other then who I am, becuse a lot of the time I like my self.

i can't post dammit
15 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Monday 4/18/05 - 5:32:04 AM EST (GMT-5)
I used to smoke pot, but then I got married. I have to hold a job, and all the jobs I'm qualified for require a piss test, so I can't smoke anymore.
