Bipolar Disorder? What out for this too
=>PLEASE FORWARD TO FRIENDS, FAMILY AND LOVED ONES <=
How's it going?
I sure have a whole lot of things
to do today. I actually am speaking
tonight about bipolar disorder and
I have to get prepared.
Tomorrow I have a lot of things
to handle with my other businesses.
Anyway, I'm really concerned about something,
and I think you need to know about it as
You know I volunteer at several places
where there are people with bipolar
disorder, like support groups and such.
Well, sometimes I like what I hear, and
then I bring that information to you,
because I think you can benefit from it.
But what is really bothering me today,
and I think it's been building up and
I'm surprised I haven't brought it up
before now, is something that I've
noticed happens at some of these
meetings that is NOT a good thing.
I'll tell you about it:
It's when people who have NO clue
about bipolar disorder give advice on
it ? even though the advice is sincere,
it is still sincerely wrong! Now people
can truly get hurt by this advice, and
that makes me mad!
For instance, one person at the support
group meeting said, "My friend told me
that since I seem to be doing so much
better, that I should stop taking my
medications." Then other people
say, yeah, my friend said the same
thing? and before you know it, this
one comment is controlling the whole
meeting, and it is a totally FALSE
thing ? a LIE!
Then, when I try to tell them that
that comment can't be true, or that
it could hurt them, or at least that
they should check with their doctor
before going off their medications,
they ALL look at me like I'm some
Know what I mean?
Or they say their friend told them to
stop working and get on disability.
Another person said that their friend
said that another friend said that they
should take this supplement on the
market instead of their medications,
that it worked for their friend's friend!
In my courses and systems, I teach
the difference between the truth and
myths that are out there about bipolar
SUPPORTING AN ADULT WITH BIPOLAR DISORDER?
SUPPORTING A CHILD/TEEN WITH BIPOLAR DISORDER?
HAVE BIPOLAR DISORDER?
But I ask myself, where are these
people getting this stuff? And how
come people are believing it?
Really, sometimes I just want to walk
out of these meetings and just keep
going. But then I remember why I am
there ? to help.
And sometimes that help is just to
tell them the truth about what their
"friends" have been telling them.
In my courses and in special reports,
I expose the myths behind the
supplements and supposed "cures"
for bipolar disorder. Unfortunately,
there is still no cure, no matter what
you may hear at a support group
Even though these people are well
meaning, always check with your
doctor before you do anything like
taking a supplement instead of your
medications just because you heard
"a friend of a friend of a friend"
says it works.
