    What a jerk. I suffer from Bipolar disorder as well and I guess some people are too ignorant to realize that it is a very real and debilitating disease.

    I'm currently faced with the same dilemma. It's too complicated for me to deal with on my own, so I'm just going to get a lawyer. I'd advise you to do the same as it can be a slippery slope in regards to illness and the legal system.

    Best Wishes.

    Some places have mental health court. You might want to ask about that. I think you have to be a first time offender tho.
