The Experience of Bipolar Disorder
BPSO does not exist to explain how bipolar disorder is experienced by those who have it. Indeed, it may be almost impossible for someone who does not have the illness to fully understand how it affects one's life. Fortunately, there are a great many people with bipolar disorder who have generously and courageously shared their experience of the illness through web sites and blogs. You will learn things here that you will not find in books. We encourage you to review these sites and find among them people whose experience of the illness seems to be similar to your loved one. You may find things there that will be a great help to both of you.

MatildaBonaparte: Years ago when I started this blog I wrote about being so independent and so happy with the life I was building. It was such a good piece of writing that it led to a wonderful romance that still occasionally smolders today. I've changed though. Much has happened. Much of it bad, very very bad. I like to think I'm still indepedent. I like to think that I'm still 17 living in the body of a strange 44 year old. Truth is, only my friends know for sure. Want to be one? I promise that I'm told its worth the effort.

Everybody Knows This is Nowhere A blog. "I went into the hospital on March 13th, 2008 for depression and suicidal ideation. It was my first hospitalization. I'm starting this blog three months later, to turn things over, report things, give them some sort of reality beyond simply being in my head. Because I don't trust my head anymore."

Here you will find a place for some of the answers to those questions that have bothered you for so long. Here you can gather with other pastors in the same situation as you. Here you will read about pastors who are hiding their illness, disguising their illness in very unique ways or "coming out" and let the chips fall where they may, trusting Him completely.
