I watched my mom deal with Bipolar. I didn't know what it was until I was much older. I just thought some days she got bad sleep and wanted to be left alone while the next day she was full of energy to the point I was tired.
Thinking happy thoughts doesn't fix everything. Working out doesn't fix having Bipolar nor is it a miracle drug. If it was, doctors wouldn't give meds for having depression, or bipolar.
The ignorance displayed in this thread is amazing. Especially because it's from a few people I never would have guessed were that ignorant.
