    Living with the right medication. Dont get me wrong, bipolar has been hell for me and the fact I got it purely because my mother was a pregnant smoker fuels me with lots of anger and grief on the topic. But at the end of the day, its a chronic illness just like my POTS and all I want for that is optimal treatment. Having or not having the illnesses doesnt matter much for me in the end. I dont think about what my life would be like without an illness because the only times I have was when other people treated me poorly due to their own perceptions and issues. I just want to exist without the over abundance of barriers in the way of being healthy with an illness. That said, I did not have this perception until I found my right medication and was able to conceptualize my problems better, so I understand those who wish they were never ill and respect it.

    I would choose not having bipolar at all.Ive been in and out of the hospital and I hate just having to take medication.

    With Bipolar 10000%. I absolutely disagree with the naive mindset that “bipolar is a gift”. False. Until we start talking about bipolar as the debilitating ILLNESS that it is there will continue to be stigma.

    WITHOUT BIPOLAR is what I meant.

    Hi all, New to alike here. I certainly would choose to live without bipolar, as meds have almost killed me. I'm certainly not the person I used to be because of the meds, kind of a boring guy really but better boring than manic.

    Without for sure. Wish I could wake up one day and it’s gone

    100% without bipolar. It has done nothing good for me and I'd rather not have to take medication to function
