I've had several family members attempting to convince me that I'm not experiencing the things that have come to past. I've been told that I'm crazy, I should have given up along time ago, & that everything's all in my head. I'm not for sure what they want from me, but they are willing to go through extreme measures to follow through.

Sometimes I feel like my family doesnt understand my depression and bipolar. I would maybe try to get them to go to a family support group with you or maybe go to a therapy session and let them feel free to address their questions and concerns. Maybe if they hear from a professional they would understand it better.
