You Are Not

Title – You are not bipolar. You have bipolar.

Inside reads: You also have hairy toes but you are not hairy toes.

No one is there illness. However, sometimes with debilitating mental illness we can forget and sometimes as loved ones we might even say things like “They’re bipolar”. I’ve repeatedly heard individuals who live with this condition describe themselves as their illness as well stating “I’m bipolar”. It’s important to remind your loved ones that they are so, so, so much more than this. No one should ever be defined by their illness. Just as you would never, ever be defined by your hairy toes.

Appropriate to send to: A loved one experiencing a bipolar disorder.
