Hi all. I have accepted that I have bipolar but have been unable to fully overcome the embarassment I have of having this illness. I know it's wrong to be embarassed about having this serious medical illness but I still struggle with those feelings. When I talk to my dad who is understanding, when I talk my niece who is the sweetest little girl I still get embarassed. I haven't even told my girlfriends family about this. I'm trully sick of being embarassed. It's not right. I would be very grateful if anyone had any suggestions on how to overcome this embarassment I have as I'm sure many of you have gone through the same thing?
