Does anyone else see themselves as damaged goods?? I mean to the point where they shy away from getting close to anyone and keep away from those who do want to be close to the point you drive them away. I am single with no hopes of ever being with someone because I know what BP has done to me and don't want to put someone else through this hell. I do not want to subject friends to this either so I either don't let new ones in or push the ones still around away with all the might I have. Its not fair to them to go through such a painful experience of dealing with someone with bipolar. Am I wrong? Should I let people in and if so how do I get rid of this ideation that I have created for myself that I am nothing but damaged goods?

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
