Do you feel there is a stigma attached to being bipolar? When people I have worked with found out, I was shunned even though I worked with no problems with them for years. Do you think your aquantances might react the same way?
Yes, there is definitely still a stigma with BiPolar, which is why I keep my bipolar blog anonymous. Thankfully the stigma is a heck of a lot less than 100 years ago, but I don't think it will ever go away. The best way to nuetralise it is to show the non-bipolar world that we have unique gifts that they don't (despite our "shortcomings")
