Real life ain't trendy

Magazines tend to have a habit of glorifying and glamourising real life stories like experiences of bipolar when the reality isnt so glossy. I was diagnosed at 16 but refused to accept it or have treatment til I had my son at 20. Those years were full of things I regret. Even after taking medication it was another year or so of bad times such as hospital admissions and suicide attempts before I found one that suits me. Now I take quetiapine which works most of the time but even now I have times when I dont feel 100% and have to take an increased  dose and will have to take it forever.
