This thread kind of gives me courage to come out as having The Crazy to friends of mine, but...then again, the stigma is so unbelievable out there, that I'd rather not. Too scary. Very few people know I have it, and I kind of push people away so they don't know about the medications I take-too many questions.

I tell others very readily. I say it matter of factly and with dignity. Often it has allowed others to open up and have someone to talk to about their own struggles.  Some people do react with stigma, but that is because they lack education about mental health.  Then I decide if I will ignore them or educate them.

I feel that it's very difficult for others who do not have the Dx to understand just how much it interferes with day to day living. With my behaviors, performance, attitude, and actions so irratic, I have come to learn disclosing you are struggling with a mental illness is positive in certain cases, but as far as details go, less is more!
