Illustration Friday " Bipolar"

click to enlarge
Todays illustration friday depicts the dark side of bipolar! I usually make more joyful art! Living with people who are afflicted with bipolar can be a fearful! Addressing episodes that have occurred can put a family or partner in jepoardy! It's niave to think we can determine who is mentally ill at a glance. Those who have experienced a life with the mentally ill have a better chance of reconizing the characteristics immediately. It's a subject often left unattended until a dire need arises!

What a WONDERFUL post! I would like to say to anyone who is interested in looking up information on the Mentall Ill to please Google NAMI. That stands for the National Alliance for the Mentally Ill. I think it's WONDERFUL to not be scared to speak about Mental Illness. I myself was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder but as I'm sure many of you know...I am also Epileptic. After I had brain surgery...the mentally Ill episodes stopped. I think that the seizures that I was having caused me to not be able to control my emotions as well as others. If I have Bipolar, it's a slight case of it. Those that have it REALLY BAD....can be REALLY REALLY MEAN and not mean to be.It's sad, I think. Anyhoo, this is a subject that I feel strongely about. My father was president of NAMI for awhile. I think it's wonderful that you posted about it! I REALLY DO!

I worked with someone who was diagnosed with bipolar - only AFTER a break down episode at work. It had caused her to have a severe temper and to make inappropriate decisions regarding men. Once she got the treatment and proper medication she eventually returned to work. At that time I read up on as much as I could so at least I would better understand any behavior changes...where as before she was pretty hard to take. Mental Illness has no outwards signs like a physical disability...so you are so right about it being left unattended.
