Bipolar Disorder: Not the Cause of Every Problem in a Relationship


I wish more people would understand Bipolar Disorder.  I once got in a fight with my husband that had nothing to do with me being Bipolar.

First, he said that I was in the wrong in the fight because I had a small amygdala. Which is a little factoid that I read somewhere about people with Bipolar Disorder and made the mistake of telling him. I think we were fighting about where to eat, so my amygdala or lack thereof really had nothing to do with the topic at hand and neither did my Bipolar Disorder.
