I let them make the decision if want to get to know me or not. I look at it this way either they can deal with it (which is great) or they can't... which is fine too.
That is exactly a huge problem for me, too.
Making friends was always easy and if I told them about having bipolar and all they said it's okay but being then really able to deal with my mood swings and the way I sometimes act was then always a different thing.
Cuz even if you know about these things it is hard to deal with them.

So usually I have the same effect if I don't talk about my being Bi Polar and the friendship just going to hell one day cuz they feel I'm a moody asshole.
That at least spares me them telling everyone afterwards I'm a crazy freak.
