Just people in general on other sites not this one... am new to this site
I wouldn't think you would have to say anything unless you wanted to. Even in person you might need to know someone well. I have genetic anxiety/depression and don't worry much about sharing it but I'm older and just really don't care so much who knows. In dating I would assume it might need to come up relatively soon so the other person can make a judgment whether or not it is something they are comfortable dealing with as well as they'd like to know how diligent you are about self care and meds if you take them.
I have a friend who has bipolar most likely from a trauma she had. It was helpful for her to tell me and what her triggers are trauma wise so that when she tells me she needs to get out of an environment for awhile I get it. Crowds, etc.
Yes I take my tablets it's a risk if I dont so take them with no questions ask so you think I should not be to open about it. In tell I get to know someone frist
Probably on a need to know basis. I don't mean you have to hide it by any means but it really depends where you live in the world. In the U. S. there is more understanding but some other countries not so much. I think it will happen naturally as you get to know someone. I only think it is really pertinent when you are dating or as you become closer friends. It just takes some practice knowing who to trust and who not to trust. It isn't anything embarrassing it's just some people are ignorant.
Yeah that's very interesting replie as live in uk and people knot to understanding there quit to judge and have hight opinions so it's hard for people like me to trust people to be mindful I am up front honsted persion maybe need just hold some stuff back till time is write
If you can't trust people then be careful. Tell a few trusted friend and family members who can help you when you need it and keep an eye on how you are doing so they can tell you when they think something is off with you. I'm all about honesty but not if it is going to harm your well being.
Thank you for you advice its probably the most sensible advice I have been give in little while I appreciate it very much
