Hi I am not a sufferer of BP but I have had clinical depression in th e past so I can partially understand. My stepdaughter is a major sufferer and her life has been ruined by her mental health problems. She has been in and out of hospital for 20 years and just survives..on the edge constantly. I know that she has to survive each day with no end. I admire the strength she has for this. Her self esteem is awful and I understand why. Life has to go on for her and her family, she just drags on the edge. I cannot believe anyone can go through life with such a heavy burden. So for anyone whos reading this, There are lots of people out there who do not judge people with Mental health issues, they just want to love you and be there for you...whatever and whenever ....that is the only thing anyone can do to help...be there in the background with the love and understanding that you cannot save someone from this and they cannot save themselves......
