I frequently blog openly about what life is like living with this disorder. Scroll through my posts and you’ll see that. Lately, I have had a very hard time opening up about it. I feel this sense of shame. Almost a feeling of guilt for being the way I am. I constantly find myself saying to Ben, “I don’t want to be like this.” It’s a terrible feeling that often leads to suicidal ideation if I’m left alone with my thoughts for too long.
Bipolar disorder doesn’t have a face. It can affect anyone. My name is Faith. I have Bipolar I. I have been fighting for as long as I can remember and I will continue to fight. I am bipolar strong.
