I hate it when my friend who is not bipolar (no offense to the non bipolars on the board) tries to make me feel like she knows how I am feeling. I have one friend who always does this and it is irritating. This friend does not know how I feel. Does not know the debths to which depression can sink me in just a day. This is the same friend who got really upset and told me not to 'talk like that' when I was suicidal. Don't get me wrong she has been a good friend she just does *not* understand this debth of depression that someone who is bipolar can get to in a short amount of time. Sorry I just had to vent. She's been a good friend but this aspect of our relationship, I guess you'd say irritates me to no end. Off soapbox now.
