The sadness one feels in everyday life just isn't the same as the sadness in depression.

People view bipolars as broken and to be loved in spite of their mental illness. Some can see the person and their bipolar together as something to love.

Have you heard of dimensional diagnosis of mental illness? It's something that is more complex but may represent a mental illness more accurately. 
The medical community recognizes that mental illnesses frequently occur together and that each person has unique symptoms. More at Bipolar Burble blog.

Interesting concepts wanting justification for unknown pathology.  All others welcome but will be ignored, including MD PhD BvD or SaD.  My credentials are from a lifetime of indiscretions of the theoretical cognitive sort. In other words I don't know Jack really, only what I feel, and as you know who can trust their feelings before, during or after an episode of undetermined length.  Rosary beads and prayer rugs work almost as well as many prescriptions. Only the faithful are cured, in due time.  Boil this down to one simple sentence.  Know thyself, then make changes.

Learn what feeling that is "too big" feels like.
The feelings of bipolar are too big. I know this sounds odd to the average person, but living with bipolar is about living with emotions that are too big.

If you can express those emotions without loosing an ear, all the better for everyone.  Big is also the only way I feel, everything in between is a blur or nothing at all.  Rattle cages to see teeth, smell breath, see saliva - got it.

Parents, unfairly, get blamed when their child gets a mental illness.

I know that others can't control their brain, too, but, still, I feel inadequate because of my lack of control.

It seems like when you're depressed you can't remember ever not being depressed. A trick of the brain?

When people who are not healthcare professionals insist on telling me how to get better, it really ticks me off.
Everyone seems to think they know how to treat bipolar. I'm tired of random, unqualified people telling me what to do to treat my bipolar illness.
