I have just been diagnosed as BP, after years of misdiagnosis with chronic depression. I have just been seriously hurt by someone I thought was my friend. (We were best friends at school and college). She recently got back in touch, and we met up a few times, and she seemed as delighted as I to be back in contact. She knew I had depression. A few days ago, she chatted with me through FB, and ended up saying that I should just get on with it like her, and get off that s*** (my meds) and get back to her. She said that I needed to get 'over it'. She wouldn't listen when I tried to tell her it was a medical condition. Has anyone else been really hurt by someone's reaction to their BP, and how did you deal with it? Thanks.
