Having bipolar disorder really affects your relationships with people. Others often don’t realize how hard it is to interact with other people when you have this disease. I often come across to people as brusque and rough because interaction is so very difficult when your moods are fluctuating. I do my level best not to. And I do my best to not let bipolar be an excuse for bad behavior. Please pray for me that I can do better in this realm as I continue to recover.
