Love, Marriage and Bipolar disorder – My SISTERS article

I was inspired to write this article after watching The Silver Linings Playbook for the second time. If you liked the movie, you’ll love the book, by Matthew Quick. I can totally see why Jennifer Lawrence won an Oscar for her brilliant performance. Bradley Cooper has really grown as an actor since his days in Alias!

I’d like to thank Tamara Redfern, life coach extraordinaire, for helping me bring my article to life.

I spotted an error in the second paragraph in my article: I’ve interviewed a writer with Bipolar Type 1, Sara (pen name) and her husband, Ali (pen name), who does not have bipolar. I’ve also interviewed Tamara Redfern, Sara’s life coach, who also has bipolar.

Sorry about that, folks. Nobody is classified as an illness!

One thought on “Love, Marriage and Bipolar disorder – My SISTERS article

  1. I am diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder and I don’t mind when someone says that I am bipolar.

    The word bipolar has become both a noun and an adjective. To me, it is equally same whether I am referred to as being bipolar or having Bipolar. I feel that saying “googling” is not less correct than saying “using Google” or saying “someone is diabetic” is not less correct than saying “someone has Diabetes”. Usage of a word itself is not the issue for me but I do take connotations very seriously.

    Even if someone says that I have Bipolar Disorder I can feel offended IF the tone is not right and I am just fine if someone says that I am bipolar as long as I don’t sense any negativity in their expression. It is not about the words we say but how we say them that matters.

    Also, this is purely my view and I do not expect everyone to adhere to this view.
