    Thank you,
    I suffer from bipolar. It is much more difficult than many people realize. I guess you would almost have to experience how it is to know. It can be like being in a snowstorm when you can not see in front of you. You know where you want to go, but you can not see the pathway! I think the hardest times are those when there is nothing wrong, yet the feeling of hopelessness is still there. I have seen it destroy some wonderful people! Thank you for your awareness and for helping others know that it is something that we should all think about. It makes the battle a little easier.

    Thank you, Carmen, for this article.

    While I've never had clinical depression, bipolar disorder, or anything similar, I have witnessed such things in others along with the psychological and emotional trauma that mental illness can bring on families when not properly treated. It is best to get such things treated.
