This is a blog about bipolar disorder from a family's point of view.
There are three different views when it comes to someone who has a mental illness: The perception of the person with the disorder, observations from family and friends, and the interpretation from a doctor. Our posts represent our experiences.

Down the Drain
I flushed my MEDS down the toilet.
In the 5 years since I found out that I have Bipolar Disorder, I have been a good girl adhering to treatment. I hated it the whole time.
My therapist moved in what seems like forever.
My psychiatrist retired. His DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration) Number is inactive so my prescriptions can't be refilled.
I need to find other people to replace them. Explaining my life once again.. I do not want to go there. Great excuse. I have been talking about quitting medication for years.
Now that I have no one to watch over me, I don't have to follow the rules.
