Personal Tales & Terrors

One of the ways bipolars help one another is to share their experiences of how they've come to terms with this illness they have in common. On this page (and through various links) are the personal tales, terrors, suffering, and humiliating experiences that bipolar disorder can, and most often does engender. If you see yourself reflected in the words of others like you it is hoped you'll no longer feel alone or as if you are the only person to have done some rather bizarre things. A warning: some of the material here may be disturbing to some people.
