Your advice didn’t help.
Sorry. We do our best, we are not professionals, and we don’t claim to be. We’re just trying to help, how we can.
That meme was insulting.
We sensor as much as we can, but there’s no pleasing everyone. The ones that are overly vulgar or rude don’t go through, but we all have different definitions of what “overly” might be.
I relate, am I bipolar?
Being able to relate to a meme means you’re disordered as much as sleeping all day means you’re a cat.

I’m underage and my parents won’t let me get help.
We get this type of question a lot of they’re really hard to read. We’ve both been in these shoes, and realistically speaking, the options are limited. It’s up to your parents how to handle your medical issues. If you’re in school, talk to your counselor. Some schools have mental health professionals that come in that you can see, and also they could give you information and even call your parents in for a group meeting to try and help them understand. A school guidance counselor or whoever is in charge of the students is going to be your best bet.

Bipolar and identity issues
With the severe differences between mania, depression and “normal”, it can be easy and very common to feel like you don’t know yourself. Everything from you sexual preferences to your religion can change depending on your mood. It’s also common that during mania to question whether you could have ever been “really” depressed and vice versa with depression and mania. Its sadly common to question our diagnosis, and wonder if it’s not as bad as it seems. The only real advice I have for this is to use this confusion and frustration as motivation to give your all to a treatment program.
Not feeling sick “enough”
Never compare yourself to anyone, in any part of life. Your struggle is not someone else’s struggle. Even if you have the same diagnosis, it will not treat you both the same and you will not react the same to it. Your symptoms will not be equal, nor will your treatment. When you have the flu, you are not less ill because someone else somewhere has cancer. You are still sick and still need to be taken care of and treated. Not attempting suicide doesn’t mean you’re not depressed “enough”. Not stealing a car & having 17 sexual partners in a night doesn’t mean you’re not manic “enough”. You are you and you deserve to be taken care of and to be OK.
Should I try to get help?
For this question I’ll direct you to our “what do I do” page.
I’ve tried every medication out there!
No, no you haven’t. Even if you feel like you’ve tried all the medications you can think of, you probably haven’t tried ALL of the combinations or ALL of the options or ALL of the doses. Bipolar isn’t something that can be treated after a few days of a simple medication like an antibiotic. Most medications take up to six weeks to even feel the effects. This is something that takes a lot of patience and determination. It’s worth all the time in effort in the end.
