Sister (bipolar disorder) has a relapse again, the last was many years back. Battling since 2010.
Few weeks back, she had to fill in some corporate insurance form so she indicated her history and pass the form to her crew leader. Apparently when she applied for this fast food chain many years back she have indicated her history
She told me her leader has go around telling the crew floor her past condition. Hence they start to ostracise her and teasing she is from imh.
She went to the HQ to ask for help and was asked to email the fast food branch instead.
She continued to work as she need a salary to feed herself.
We talked to her and try to make her feel better. Ignoring the ignorant colleagues but I think she cannot handle and today her bipolar disorder relapsed
Now I’m on my way to IMH to admit her, my parents are in the cab with her now there
I am very upset of the stigma they faced?
Do you think they have a choice? Do you think that they WANT to be sick?
We need empathy and keep our ignorance to ourselves without hurting others unknowingly with our words
