There should be a mental disorder about destroying your family - October 6th 2009, 09:21 AM

well thats what I hear from my parents, that I'm destroying their lives. I've been diagnosed bipolar, but Idk. Maybe I'm a sociopath, that's how my parents portray me. Who knows. All I know is I'm crazy and I hate myself causing me to do all kinds of self harm. doesnt matter tho. Im jus crazy.

Shanna, I'm sorry to hear that your parents have told you that you're ruining they're lives. You suffer from a disorder that is outside your control. You are NOT crazy.

Hi there Shanna,

I'm sorry to hear that your parents are acting this way towards you and are saying things to you which are having a negative impact.
It is very unfair for your family to be reacting this way towards you - you don't deserve to be portrayed as a something that you're not. Just because you have been diagnosed with a psychiatric disorder, it does not mean that you are crazy - a lot of people would be 'crazy' if that was the case! Also, I'm sorry to hear that you do feel a hatred towards yourself and that you're self harming, but again that does not make you crazy.
It obviously does matter if you're struggling with these feelings, it does matter how you feel and you don't deserve to feel bad because you have bipolar disorder. You can't always control your behaviour or emotions, Shanna.
Are you getting treatment, such as therapy alongside medication? It may be worthwhile if you talk to someone about how you're feeling and you may even think about asking your parents to talk to a medical professional about bipolar, it may help them to understand what is going on.

Take care of yourself.

please don't think about killing, your life is far too precious to end it, there is so much can do and achieve xxx
Please seek help, either by speaking to someone or just phoning a helpline

Shanna,
I'm sorry that you're parents are being like this to you. It's unnecessary for them to treat you this way. Is there somewhere you can go and stay that'll be more comfortable for you and you're parents won't have to do this to you?
If you want to talk about anything sometime, you can PM me or ask me for my IM screenname (I have MSN, AIM, & Yahoo) and you can talk to me anytime. =]
