Depressed about Depression?

If you have bipolar disorder, you've probably had
some well-meaning person say "I know how you feel.
I get depressed too".

If you're like me, this may invoke the urge to kick
them in the shin while saying "No, you don't!"
at an inappropriate volume level.

The next time someone suggests they know
about "feeling kind of down", you may want
to refer them to these stats...

This next one is pretty harsh,
especially if you are BPII.

This is why there's medication...
and this is why I don't believe it when people
say "I know how you feel", unless they are one
of the diagnosed.
