Warning: If you have bipolar disorder, stay away from manipulators!

Names and places in this story have been changed to replace both the guilty and the innocent.

As many of you are aware, I have bipolar disorder and was diagnosed with it nearly 20 years ago. It hasn’t been perfect, but I believe that I’ve dealt with as well as I can.

Earlier, I wrote about whether those of us with bipolar disorder should “come out of the closet with our bipolar disorder.” I was referring to whether or not we should tell people that we have bipolar disorder.

My new sad answer is, “No.”
