We invite you to share your bipolar stories with us and with other visitors to Bipolar-Story.com. We hope that through sharing our experiences and insights, we can all come to a better understanding of bipolar disorder and perhaps even manage it more effectively in our lives. (Scroll down to the bottom to type or paste your story in the Comment box to share it.)
If you have your full story published elsewhere and you want to promote it here, please do not post merely an advertisement for a story with a link to your story. Instead, submit a synopsis (brief version) of your story (750 to 1500 words) along with a link at the end pointing to where our guests can read the full story. Any other promotional language will be removed.
When reading and commenting on the stories and insights of others, keep in mind that we are not responsible for what others choose to post or any advice they may offer. This area is intended to be an open forum. We discourage any blatant advertising of products or services, and we may remove comments that we deem to be advertisements. When posting comments and responding to other people’s stories, please remain respectful and courteous.

Note: We rearranged the stories to place each story on a separate page, so they don’t get mixed up with comments from other stories. If you don’t see your story on this page, check the alphabetical listing in the sidebar to the right under “Share Your Bipolar Story” and the links above. We hope you like the arrangement.
After you post your story, it will appear temporarily on this page. Within a few days or so, we will edit your story lightly (for typos only). We will not alter the content of the post. We will also move the story to a page of its own, where visitors can post their comments.
Please include your email address where requested in the form below, so we can contact you, if necessary. We will not publish or share your email address or send you any information unless you request something.
