Re: Touched With Fire: Relationships and Bipolar Disorder
I just finished watching this and am holding back the tears.
Without spoiling this movie for anyone that hasn't watched it yet,I found it very depressing.While I am not bipolar,I have struggled my entire life with mental illness,unaware of it until I was diagnosed and received help about 7 years ago,and after watching this I can't help but wonder if my illness raised my kids.I would never want to go back in time and not have my kids and I absolutely do not regret having them,I just wish I had known back then,wish I had received help back then.
Maybe I am the reason they have the issues they do now.It took a long time to stop blaming myself for what they struggle with,to stop beating myself up for mistakes I made with them,all the things I should have done differently,all the would have,should have,could haves,and now I am right there again.
Almost wish I hadn't watched this at all,not only was it depressing but now I am depressed.
