I came across an interesting thread over at BPHope. The question was: ….living with bipolar: do you perceive it as A) part of you, but not you. B) Everything you are.
You can see the thread here.
I thought it was an interesting question.
I think I find it to be everything I am. I mean, it is a huge part of me. And I can’t really say “here is the line: everything over here is bipolar and everything over here is me.”
I have always said “I’m Bipolar” but that offended so many people. Because so many people are of the mind that they HAVE bipolar but are NOT bipolar. I am curious as to how they find/define the line.
How would you answer?
