Have any of you with bipolar ever tried to explained some of your symptoms to "normal" people - like how my memory is very bad and how I get confused, and how I have problems learning and concentration. Racing thoughts, voices, chattering in my head. They say "Well I forget some things too and I sometimes my mind wanders too. Everybody goes through that." Do they think that helps? They are minimizing our symptoms and making us feel like we are hypochondrics. I get so frustrated. Bipolar is so complicated and it's just impossible to explain, unless you've been there. It's just not even worth it to try. Does anyone else feel this way?
