I wish I could write of bipolar the way Ms Tracy can and I encourage anyone including my wife to follow her blog at “http://natashatracy.com/“. Its hard to pick just one but I kind of liked this one. All credits to Natasha Tracy.

I Apologize for Emotional Overreactions

And so I feel like half the time I’m apologizing for unreasonable,overwhelming emotional reactions. I’m sorry my emotions are popping out of my eyeballs. I’m sorry my mood prevents me from sitting still. I’m sorry I can’t stop talking about what a horrible human being I am. I’m sorry I can’t get over a tiny event that happened weeks ago. I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry. I’m aware that my reactions are crazy but I can’t do anything about them – because, in case you’ve forgotten, I’m crazy.

I understand why it’s important to apologize – it’s important because my overreactions can distress others – but my, is it ever tiring. And it doesn’t feel particularly fair. When was the last time a cancer patient had to apologize for their symptoms?

 Edit: Tues Oct 15th: – ok I heard from Natasha Tracy herself,woohoo, and she asked me not to do a full reproduction but excerpts or quotes were ok so I trimmed it to what I liked best. Again I am only quoting her and her blog Bipolar Burple here. I must say it was pretty cool to hear from her directly. Who knows maybe I will hear from Kay Jamison next 😛
