Thank you. I’ve decided to basically come clean about my condition, because I find it therapeutic. I get pretty frustrated when I read articles like this which categorize bipolar and mental conditions as a character flaw.
Being bipolar isn’t easy, but frankly I’m happy with who I am, and it is never “hopeless” regardless of what the author might think. There are a lot of high functioning bipolars and even those with severe conditions can live productive lives.
Frankly I am disappointed by the number of people including the Medium editors who recommended this article who think the wording this article is perfectly acceptable. It is not.
