Q. How open are you about telling people that you are bipolar?

I am studying in a coed college and am high scoring and talented. Actually I am a guitarist who entertains most of my peers. So I have lots of friends. For the past 8 months I could not use my guitar because of my busy study schedule. Without music I feel very depressed. My attitude has changed. My friends started deserting me because of my depression. So I started hating life and checked with a psychiatrist who diagnosed as bipolar. I fear whether I will lose my friends. So this question is to bipolar people: How open are you about telling people that you are bipolar?
A1P.S..we all have problems,god made us all different,acept who you are,and you will be alright.
A2JENN...is right..you are young..and have a lot to learn....your real friends will be there in hard times..in sickness and in health,do not get depressed because of this (crap).forget about the people who only come around for fun,or to get something...dont let them interfere with your health..consentrate on what you have to do to finish school,and to keep your self mentally healthy...stay away from alcohol.....stay focused.....mrfoot56
A3One thing I have learned in life is that your true friends will stick by you through anything. All of the others are not your true friends and if they leave you in your times of need than they are better off not being by your side. To me it is more important to have few good true friends than thousands of "fair weather" friends. Tell whoever you feel like sharing with, never be ashamed to be exactly who you are! Bipolar disorder is an illness you suffer from and is not a reflection of you as a person. A friend that will drop by just to say hi when you are feeling down and not judge you while they are there are the only friends worth keeping.

Q. what is the best thing to do to eliminate or to let it be remove without surgery?I'm afraid but laser mayb ok

If I can go for laser where can you suggest coz I'm jobless and can't afford to pay.Or is there some remedy that i can take to melt those stones inside my bladder then they can come out through my waste ?
ABladder stones, also called bladder calculi, often form when concentrated urine sits in your bladder. Bladder stones usually need to be removed. If the stone is small, your doctor may recommend that you drink an increased amount of water each day to help the stone pass. If the stone is large or doesn't pass on its own, your doctor may need to remove the stone. Bladder stones are usually removed during a procedure called a cystolitholapaxy. This is done by inserting a small tube with a camera at the end (cystoscope) through your urethra and into your bladder to view the stone. Your doctor uses a laser, ultrasound or mechanical device to break the stone into small pieces and then flushes the pieces from your bladder.
I am not familiar with the cost of such procedure.
