I was diagnosed as bp a month or two ago and I have told a handful of friends. I don't see any reason not to tell people, the disorder is part of me, but isn't all that I am. Some people I am very close with have suggested keeping the disorder a secret because people may use it against me. Has anyone out there had that experience? So far I haven't had anyone throw it back in my face, I'm not sure how or why they would anyway, but has that happened to anyone more experienced with bp?
