My dad and sister both have bipolar, so I've gotten used to explaining that bipolar doesn't make someone crazy. My family never hurt me. Life at home was different, but I am a perfectly fine person and I've spent my whole life around two people with bipolar and they mean the world to me.

Crazy is a bad word to call anyone but if bipolar just means everything is fine and normal then there wouldn’t be a diagnosis for it.

The story could be a work of fiction but I had a very close friend who was bipolar, and whenever she went off her meds she went bonkers. She would go off her meds because she thought they made her fat. One night she was coming to visit me and when she got to my door, she had a pair of sharp scissors in her hand, claiming that someone had followed her from the subway. She said a man tried to touch her hair, etc. She had a lot of delusions when she went off her meds, so perhaps that's what this guy left out of the story. On meds, my friend could be a lovely, kind person. Off meds she was completely unpredictable, especially in the manic phase. It's very challenging to deal with a bipolar person who's off their meds, no matter how much you love and care about them.

A year ago I went off all my meds, diagnosed as bipolar and medicated for 5 years before that. In this year my life has only gotten better, my mental state stable, I am far more capable of dealing with problems calmly. My life on meds was a nightmare, off meds it's become the dream I always wanted, even when all hell breaks loose I manage fine. Please don't generalize people with disorders under certain labels. Some people can manage without meds, some need minimal and some need to be sure they never miss a dose. Bipolar does not equal violent, nor does it equal challenging. Each person brings their own individual needs and problems to the table. Perhaps in future I will need a treatment plan again, but not for one moment have I ever been a violent "psychotic" person whether on them or off them. Bipolar is not a label that can be used to excuse criminal behavior, it is completely possible to work hard on yourself and move away from toxic people and function to your best abilities.

Yeah I'm bipolar, so thanks. Been through and caused an equal amount of shit, and yes I am unstable. But we're not all undateable nutjobs. My partner stood by me for the last 10 years, and he helps me calm the storm that sometimes rages in my head or my heart. But I like to believe that I make his life better too. We have 2 beautiful kids, and we try to teach them to be loving, considerate and patient. Not easy when sometimes you're a total mess, and other times you feel like Supermom with a capital S. But don't call us crazy, seriously.
