Default How open are you about your disorders-mental illnesses??

I have been diagnosed with bipolar at quite young age. It also runs in my family and stuff.
I have learnt to deal with my disorder and try not to let it take too much effect on my daily life.

Here's my question. How open are you about your disorder/illness...do you openly talk about it or do you try to hide it from your friends, people at school etc.

For me a few really close friends and some teachers at school know about it otherwise I don't really want people to know about it. I don't want them to think I'm crazy or whatever. I mean most people don't really know about those disorders and things and I don't want them to think I'm a freak or something.

I have had quite a few negative reactions when I told people so maybe that's why I try to hide it now.

But I'd be intersted how others feel about this and how open they are about it.
