It has been brought to our attention by more than one person that some might find the title of our website offensive and/or contributing to the stigma being labeled Bipolar.
As many of you already know, and possibly advocate for, there is a large movement to say We are Not Bipolar, We HAVE Bipolar. We are not the illness, we have the illness. and The illness does not define us. Which I agree with all of the above.
However, in my (not necessarily the right) opinion, I think it is what it is. Yes, I have bipolar. But even when referring to my illness or telling people what illness I have, I still say it, Im bipolar. The words just come out like that. But I am. As am I Depressed, Manic, Anxious, OCD Bipolar just happens to be one of those illnesses where us with bipolar dont really have an actual Title.
