Have you ever been ignored because you said you had a mental illness? How were you ignored?
It has happened to me. Once it was out that I have bipolar I guess I am just one less crazy to deal with. I mean, they were nice and welcoming then they turned cold. Also, when I am dealing with my kids, they do observe me but not like in a nice and ohhh what cute kids kind of way , either.
I understand that being bipolar can cause paranoia but if things were fine prior then what can I say? I am not going to approach them on the issue. I am just nice and smile and nod. I figure if they want to judge me then I guess it's their loss.
