    The next time YOU think of calling someone BIPOLAR, just REMEMBER....


    For two years I fought my diagnosis of Bipolar NOS (Non Specific). I even told my doctor when he mentioned I might have manic episodes, "NO THANK YOU, I have enough crazy already." (I had already been diagnosed with depression.)

    I've finally accepted my diagnosis - I affectionately refer to it as BATSHITCRAZY - but so MANY people are afraid to come "out of the closet" because of the #stigma attached to being bipolar.

    So please READ THIS, and then #thinktwice the next time you even think of using the term bipolar.

    Because the weather may be UNPREDICTABLE, but it is NOT bipolar.
