I'm having a daily battle with family over meds. Many people with bipolar often feel they don't need their meds. I KNOW I have to take them every day even on good days. My family is very negative concerning my diagnosis! They don't believe I'm bipolar despite the fact that my dr told them that she'd never had someone score so definitely bipolar on questionnaire.

My life literally depends on it. Any suggestions?
