Okay, anyone out there who has problems with people understanding that even though you are BP you still have normal feelings just like everyone else? I'm tired of people expecting me to just be happy all the time and if I'm not I get "Did you stop taking your meds?" or "Oh here she goes again..." Then my feelings get blown off and there is no respect. What spurred this off is that my sister in law, whom I actually bend over backwards to make sure she has visitation with my daughter separately from my ex, went and cut my daughter's hair from the middle of her back to her shoulders without asking.(And no, she's not a hairdresser) I got upset and nicely asked her not to do that again w/out asking first. The response I got from her and my ex was first "here she goes..." and my ex asked if I was off my meds or needed to see my doc. Ugh...I still have real feelings!How do you get others to see and respect that?
