In all these slurs that have been thrown around about Mel,
I hope that you make use of the fact that Mel has Biopolar
to educate people about this disease,and the effect it has on those around them.
As someone living with a male who has Bipolar-it is the pride of men that is the biggest problem,they will not admit to having the problem, and even though diagnosed
refuse to except it.
Having lived most of there life having flucuating mood swings,to be put on a medication that makes them feel normal
is difficult.
The response from them is "I FEEL DEAD-AND I DONT FEEL LIKE ME"
Theyre usually very loving,gifted people,
I feel very sorry for Mel, as I know personally what a crippling disease this is to the person and those around them.
