Is it uncomfortable to talk about it?

I did a radio interview earlier this week (which you can listen to HERE) and was left with mixed emotions. Where as I enjoy sharing my story with others because I know it helps them, it still manages to be uncomfortable. And it’s one thing to put yourself out there on a blog, but its a whole other thing to broadcast it via radio.

So that’s where my question comes in …

Is it uncomfortable for you to talk about your bipolar disorder?

  1. Marybeth,

    That is an absolutely awesome interview. Really amazing. You have so much guts to talk about it so openly!

    I was at lunch with some women yesterday and they asked what I did. I told them that I am an unpaid, unpublished writer and that I have written children’s books and am working on books of my own, have a blog, and write for a website. But I still, after all these years, could not tell them what the website was. There is always that stigma attached. Even at the age of 47, I still am embarrassed sometimes.

    You are an inspiration! Thank you so much for trying to get the word out there and letting me be a part of it.

  2. I actually don’t feel uncomfortable talking about it. If someone wants to know, I have no problem telling them because the way I feel about it, because I think its better for people to know the reality of it than to sugar coat things or be very vague because so much can be misinterpreted or assumed by the lack of information. The more I share, the more people can understand exactly what I’m feeling. That’s just my take on it

    AND, I THINK THIS INTERVIEW IS AMAZEBALLS AND I WAS CHEERING IN MY OFFICE THE WHOLE TIME I HEARD IT! (yes, i’m yellin so that it has more impact!) 🙂
