An ode to the partners, family and friends of people with Bipolar

Flaws and All by Beyonce

When I listen to this song I think of my husband (and even some of my friends and family) and I’m grateful for their love, I’m grateful that they catch me when I fall and I’m grateful they forgive my mood swings.

There is a flip side to this too however because when I think about how hard I am to love, it deepens my depression and increases my anxiety; due to the fear of losing people from my life.  I try to focus on how few people have left my life compared to how many have stayed and I also (now thanks to this blog) have a wealth of new people entering my life who have a level of understanding about my mental illness, I really am blessed.

Please enjoy this You Tube clip and let me know whether you can relate to the song too?
