      It seems like depression is more “socially acceptable” than bipolar disorder. Do you agree? Honestly, I tell people I’m depressed instead. I’m so ashamed of the bipolar label. I’ve heard people refer to people with bipolar disorder as “crazy, mean or psycho.” How did you accept the diagnosis? I’d love to hear responses.
