    But the demands of modern society and its contemporary views provide the platform for us to see otherwise And so I ask you to start with one person Ask one person for forgiveness Tell one person that you really need their love Not because our seemingly bipolar outbreaks deserve forgiveness but because we are all in training Another one of my recent favorite quotes by Mike McHargue follows People grow when they are loved well If you want to help others heal love them without an agenda Consider sharing these messages with those you love and believe love you If we take baby steps we all can achieve stillness and security in all of our relationships Then we may see how our thoughts and action are inextricably connected to one another There is no time to waste Like Buddha said The trouble is you think you have time For more blogs and thoughts by me click here Tagged with Bipolar family forgiveness relationships About the author Princess Marksalot Has 7 Articles Princess Marksalot was diagnosed Bipolar 1 after her first psychotic break in her early thirties Like many Princess owes her stability today to her closest family friends and a few key doctors that have helped her see her true self along the way She views her disease as a God given gift and wouldn t give it away if she could In her blog Being Bipolar isn t EASY she writes about what it is like to be a manic depressive and hopes to educate those that are not mentally ill and to support those that are Princess dreams of telling her story on the BIG screen and as such is currently writing her first Screenplay from her home in Macao China where she lives with her relentlessly supportive husband and little boy wonder 2 COMMENTS Sandra February 9 2016 Reply A supervisor once suggested that when we become disgruntled with a coworker of the parent of a student we should give that person the gift of a little grace Give them a little slack remember we all have our faults and think how we would want to be treated in the situation She also used a wonderful expression that I ve found immeasurably helpful in difficult situations Help me understand how Instead of blaming seek answers to questions work to find a win win solution Princess February 10 2016 Reply I like that Leave a Reply to Sandra Cancel reply Your email address will not be published Required fields are marked Message First Name or Nickname Do not use full name Email RELATED ARTICLES Blog Mental Illness in Catholic Schools Catholic Prejudice February 8 2016 12 01 am I was raised a catholic My parents were catholic their parents were catholic all my neighbors and most of my friends were catholic As a Diabetes II Versus Bipolar II The Power of Stigma February 5 2016 3 49 pm When my husband was diagnosed with diabetes II doctors nutritionists

    be a challenge Ask the teacher if you can record the lecture This way you can listen to it again Read what is assigned You might be able to find a recording of some of your materials or you can read out loud say it and record them yourself to play back as a review Take notes of what you hear and read Writing things down helps to remember them This is what I had to do in difficult classes to make it through French was particularly grueling for me I used to go to sleep at night listening to a tape Good luck to you I hope these suggestions help Penny February 9 2016 Thanks Mary Ann excellent ideas faithful February 9 2016 I experienced a loss of job many time due to BP 1 manic episode Although I did not cause any problem at my work after a couple weeks of absence hospitalization due to manic episode I found my self without job I experienced the harsh reality that stigma against mental illnesses is all over My question is Why is taking maternity leave or cancer treatments any different from taking care of mental crisis by Dr until he or she is stable enough to go back to work It s hard enough to go through recovery process but came out of mania to deal with financial problem does not help at all with feeling of guilt and shame that comes with this illness Penny February 10 2016 Good point about acceptable absences After years of trying to keep a desirable job when moods get the best of me I am comfortable now working only freelance projects and substitute teaching gigs But I am lucky to have benefits through my husband s job Mental health days should be accepted maybe in our lifetime Cheryl February 11 2016 Thank you for this information I agree totally with all that is said here Here is my thing My God I just want to be able to talk about it I want to be able to sit down and talk about what goes on on a daily weekly monthly yearly basis As those who have coffee clutches book clubs cooking groups etc I want so bad to have that for those of us suffering from this illness Just enjoying a cup of coffee or a movie or a book or tip on how something worked without the drama invalidation fix it mentality that goes on would be a breath of fresh air I get more support education and invitation to activities in my gluten free meetings Gluten I can avoid and I appreciate everyone s support care education books tips etc I do but how about we take that up a notch and discuss a serious illness bipolar and use those same techniques in dealing with that You mention any type of exotic different potentially deadly disease and everyone is googling throwing money at research discussion groups but say mental illness

    so long to receive such a clearly correct diagnosis Instead I heard challenges You are usually smiling Everyone has mood swings We all get sad We all get mad You fight for things you believe in You are just bored that is why you get depressed and We love it when you are funny manic The more friends vehemently denied that I could have this usually misunderstood disease the angrier 2 I got True few of them knew the extent of mental illness running through my family of origin s DNA But many of them had met my Dad and or heard some of my family stories Either of those should have been enough to make the connection to some sort of mental illness not at all surprising Perhaps it was strange that I didn t take it as a compliment that they thought me incapable of having a serious chronic brain chemistry problem One that without treatment would get much worse as I aged A disease that dramatically upped my chances of attempting suicide 3 I couldn t understand why many of my friends did not first offer support 4 then ask questions to understand my particular bipolar disorder and probable treatment Why were they not as compassionate to me as they had been to my husband I so wish people when being told about someone s mental illness or any illness would keep their most serious doubts to themselves and then go google Talk to immediate family members to gain insight But with the actual person grappling with a serious diagnosis select your words carefully Please be gentle imagine what it would be like to have just been told you had this disorder disease Please be kind don t laugh it off and don t shrug it off
