"Stigma, as it has for me at times, prevents me from being me, “my true self”, at work, in public, in crowds – around people who don’t know “the truth” about me. I don’t want that to be my reality anymore. Stigma is frustrating. Perhaps the more World Bipolar Days we have, like Bell Let’s Talk Day, the more celebrities and individuals will feel comfortable sharing their stories, inspiring hope and sharing positive messages about mental illness/Bipolar Disorder."

Instead, we become stagnant, much like animals in the environment that disappear in the winter, either flying to places with a hot climate or staying inside and hibernating, making an appearance when the climate becomes warmer."
