Have you been in jail or prison?

I have. It was a full-range manic episode which put me there. Be careful. This could happen to you if you go off your meds.. Don't underestimate the damage Bipolar can do. Do what you're told by your medical professionals. The Cops that delt with me, treated me no different from anyone else. They laughed when I told them I was bipolar and needed my medications. They didn't let me have my in-hailer for asthma I suffer. No prescription for my fibromyalga pain either. Not every jail or Cop is the same. There are good Cops and bad Cops. Keep that in mind. I'm glad we have them with us and they go through risking their own life to save others. They keep crime off the street. The one's I had, just happened to be down right mean and dirty. Be safe. Take your medication.
