Real Life Stuff

"Eventually you may see the silver lining in the storm clouds: your own increased awareness, sensitivity, receptivity, compassion, and maturity. You may become less judgmental and self-centered, a better person."

I don't mean to get all serious here,
but it's pretty locked in of me to shed some light on mental health.

I'm going to put this out there for those who have
a brother or sister with bipolar disorder.
I know that there are self-help books out there for those
who have the disorder, but I've never heard anyone talk
about how to live with someone, and how to cope, just how difficult it is
for a sibling, and how they are most affected.

I found a good site that helps.
The best thing I can take from it is knowing that EVERY sibling
(of a bp person) goes through it and they aren't alone.
There should be more published. And a handbook should be given.
Parents should be aware of what happens in a family.
Maybe I should take that on in addition to writing
"SHE'S just not that into you."
