Bi-Polar planet

I received an invite to join the Bi-polar planet webring by Jane of Tarzan Loves Jane

Seems like it's good time to do this with me starting therapy!


There's a lot of it about in my family, My Aunt is Bi-polar and so is her Daughter but we're not allowed to speak to them, Mum doesn't like that side of the family and funnily enough she always says that I didn't get my genes from Her side of the family.

I remember my mum telling me to go to see a psychiatrist and tell them I was Bi-polar, sadly not because she cared but so that she could feel better about herself, i.e it's not her fault it's because I'm from the wrong side of the family.

I also realised that I shouldn't be scared of posting stuff on the off chance she discovers my blog or my forum, after all what is she going to do about it, stop speaking to me, disown me, she's already done that more times that I care to remember.  is it any wonder that Hubby calls her the second head of bealzabub (sp?) !!

Ok rant over, I think I'm taking the kids to the park now!

Hi Mandy, Welcome to our webring, I'm SO glad you've decided to join us! I can really relate with how you feel about not being able to write whatever you want. I use a pseudo name for myself, my family, even my pet pig. Everything else is true, but I'm afraid, like you, that someone may find my blog & figure out who I am.
Your blog design is beautiful & you are beautiful as well. I look forward to reading your blog.

You are not allowed to speak to them? You are now an adult woman with a mind of yur own and you can choose to speak or not speak to who you like.

You can also choose to selectively hear or not hear what your mother then says about it. You'll probably never change how she reacts to certain things so you have to be the one that develops ways of dealing with her oddities, such as selective hearing.

I don't know if your therapist would agree with that approach or not.
