People with bipolar paint Sistine Chapels. “Normal” people work in offices. Everyone knows that, right? The bipolar partner may remind his or her “normal” partner of this at every available opportunity. In this context, the “normal” partner is reduced to being the stuck-in-the-mud, the deficient one, the social misfit. It’s a wonder the bipolar one even puts up with him or her.
Bottom line: Even “normal” people can be made to feel abnormal.
