I think that amount of stress would MAKE a person bi polar! Yet..you are still standing and smiling. I think talking about struggles instead of keeping them silent and internal does a lot to help one get through the difficult times. A sign of strength is not to deal with problems all on your own, but to know when to ask for help.
