sorry I don't want to offend anyone. I just have to vent. These are things I want to say to my bipolar BFF, but I won't.
I love you and I understand that you're bipolar--or I try really hard to, as I have suffered from clinical depression and I know a little of what you're going through, but I get really irritated when our friendship seems one sided or all about you. I have alot of patience with you but it's ALWAYS all about you!! I have things going on in my life too that I want you to be there for. I understand some of it might be triggers for you, so I never want you to feel uncomfortable, but return the friendship please, so I don't feel used. I have often put myself in uncomfortable positions to be there for you. I know you have problems but so do I! Why don't you ever want to help me out and I'm constantly helping you out!! I don't expect the favor returned, I just want to feel like u care. I don't want to end our friendship. We've been friends for so long, but it feels cold when you disappear and only come around when you need something.
--whew, there, thanks for listening even if you're strangers to me. I just wanted to stop myself from feeling like a pot about to boil over.
