So give us grace and love. And don’t treat us like lepers

Nearly 6 million of us live with Bipolar Disorder. An illness that tries to torture us emotionally and mentally every day. And it is always poised to kill us too.

Even those of us who get into recovery and find relief need to remain vigilant and diligent to stay there. One day at a time.

And remember that we live with the knowledge that the odds are that our lifespan will be 12% shorter than that of the average American.

So give us grace and love. And don’t treat us like lepers. We are just people with a treatable chronic illness. Like diabetes, HIV, Crohn’s Disease, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and many others.
