I had a run in with a colleague at work today. I'd told her last week about my diagnosis as I thought she'd understand as she had suffered with depression in the past. Boy was I wrong!! The office got into a general conversation about depression. She announced that depression is a state of mind and it's got nothing to do with chemicals in the brain. She then turned on me and said that I don't need my bipolar meds because if I just started thinking positively I would be fine! So guys chuck out your meds, repeat to yourself 'positive mental attitude' and you'll be cured!!!! Brilliant isn't it???
