I'm 27 and was diagnosed about 7 years ago. At first I was reding a brochure about bipolar to my roomate to my roomate at the time. It spoke of the sleepless nights, the obsessive spending, the endless energy, and her response, was " cool there's a disease for your personality". I was just wondering if anyone else ever had trouble differentiating between where the disease ends and you begin?

i made this account because i hope this reaches someone who can understand. I feel immense shame and guilt over my past behavior while manic. I have ruined relationships with friends and family members, gotten tattoos that i dont want, done things that make me cringe. The weight of the self hatred gets to be too much sometimes. I feel like a burden. Nobody understands. I hate myself today.
