bipolar disorder. by KaheriynneAnne bipolar disorder. by KaheriynneAnne
Yes, I actually have Bipolar and have gone through treatments which included psychologists, psychiatrists, therapists, and councilors. This had been going on since I was about 13 or so, I am currently not on any medication and have been staying strong for about a year without being medicated.
Life is a roller coaster for everyone, but for some it's a battle, just stay strong and optimistic you aren't ever in this alone.

I used a watercolor effect on this image.. :)

Thank you so much! :D hehe.
Your life will turn out how you wish it to.. If you are strong it will be okay :)
Everything can be a learning experience.
Never let it hold you down or take away from who you are.
Stay true to your self and rise above the lows because the depression isn't forever.
The best comfort and guidance you find within yourself..
You are young, but I know how it is to deal with mental illness at a young age.
It is do-able! :D
I don't know your specific situation but if medication is in your future do not be afraid! Doctors will help you, be truthful about your feelings, they are there to help. But if you don't like a treatment tell them, it's your life and moods and no one can tell you how to feel.
Trust me. :D

Stay strong my friend, and know you are not alone.

Awwwww, thanks, that made me feel a lot better
and apparently I have the "manic" type,
having them explain it to me is a little weird,
just in the sense that their telling me that...
idk, that I'm not acting the way I should be.
But thanks again! I know I can do this,
I'm just confused because its all so new @_@

You are so welcome!
But, If you think about it, what is.. "normal"?
I don't know which type I am.. I wanna know! haha. I feel the depression side more I would say. :P But some people don't notice the Manic so I don't know.. :p
I think me being Bipolar is one of the beautiful things about me. . .
one of the few things I like. Hehe.
It's new I know, but you know yourself already. :)

Ummm.... the depressed side they just called it being bipolar, apparently I have the 'manic' or 'high' side,
thats true! I don't understand normal.
And I'm sitting with my mom thinking, "what the hell?"
because before I was diagnosed I never used labels,
I always told people that I was myself and that I can't fit to a label because I contradict everything. I like...
heavy metal music, and country, and pop.
I.. love wearing dresses, but NOTHING beats riding my fore-wheeler in the mud, maybe in a dress? Its just... weird now that people ARE fitting me to a label..... being bipolar... D:

I know what you mean, I am like that as well (minus the country which I believe you should re-think.) LOL! jkjk.
But on a serious note, my parents knew about it when I was young, so they read up
and my mom especially would pretend like she was an expert about it.
She used to tell me I was manic if I was even excited about something,
she would constantly be looking at the "symptoms" she saw in me and would have the nerve to tell me how I was feeling like she understood. I hated it, everything I did was a symptom to my parents.
It was pretty bad for me at first and I hate it when she brings it up, sometimes it seems like she is indirectly calling me crazy.

I am who I am.
So I didn't let her bug me,
& figured everything out in time.

You still don't have labels.
If you think about it, "blonde" is technically a label or "smart" or, "teenager" "white" ect, ect, ect. People will always make labels for each other which are unavoidable. When a person looks at you they make a judgment, some call it a first impression but it's really them judging you in a way.
Just be yourself.

xDD! Hey, I love my country music! My dad is a redneck and literally, the way we bond is planning a few rounds of pool with '6-pack' in the VHS player and the radio on some country CD's. xD!

But yeah, my mom like to tell me how I feel, if I'm sick or not, and what I should do. And then she tries to keep me from doing stuff because she believes I can't handle it? She does the same thing to me, indirectly calls me crazy. I hate how she does that. And she get tested to, and hers came out false. So she has the gull to YELL at me and say, "If anyone is bipolar in this family, ITS ME!" Which is added stress from her that I DON'T need.......
