This blog is called "Rain and Cake." My nickname is "Sunshine." I like that.
So apparently Chris Brown has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Do we really need this? We’re already stuck with Mel Gibson and Charlie Sheen, among other violent monsters.
Our reputation will never improve…
So I’d just like to take this moment to speak on the behalf of the bipolar community, which I hope most of whom would appreciate me attempting to make this more well known: the majority of people with bipolar disorder are not violent monsters.
Please don’t look at celebrities like Chris Brown and/or fictional representations of bipolar disorder and make that assumption. Even when I’ve come out to close friends about having the disorder, I’ve gotten reactions like “I’ve never noticed any violent tendencies in you” or “you’ve never seemed dangerous to me.”
That’s because most of us aren’t dangerous. We just have episodes of heightened emotional states that can last for long periods. Unfortunately violent and dangerous tendencies to occur in several of us with the disorder. It’s not everyone, though. It’s not even in the DSMV for diagnosis.

I’m apparently a complete sucker for any pop song with a throwback vibe. This girl has an incredible voice as well.
