    Well, who's fault is that?


    As a Sharon fan, I would say that she is responsible for all the things she has done so I am waiting for her to be "found" out so she can get the help she needs to get healthy again and make amends to all the people she has harmed.
    who didnt guess you were a sharon fan by now? but that dont excuse your bashing posters and labeling them ignorant cause you want all posters to pity sharon. The OP asked a question and views were given but bashing posters and labeling them IGNORANT was uncalled for. Im sure posters can separate reel from real life.

    I was once a fan but I don't make excuses.

    Every character is responsible for the actions and that goes with Sharon too.

    Having bi-polar if that is the case does not excuse you from your actions....especially if your actions could of cause a life loss or directly affected another's life.
    you are telling the truth. Time to stop sugarcoating what Sharon Newman is currently doing and to many lives. Jack is a recovering addict whose daily tempted to take a drink or call his supplier thanks to Sharon. Summer is so confused and dont know who is her real family right now. She's been torn from the arms of her real father and pushed to the wrong guy all so Sharon can get her "freak" on with Nick. who says? she has poisoned the mind of a young vulnerable child Faith. Just what is she gonna do to get Nick back? I mean how far will she go to get what she wants? thats not entertaining or funny watching her in action.

    Sharon is responsible for taking her meds.

    This is a very poorly written portrayal of Bi Polar to begin with, people with Bi Polar can not turn on and off, manic episodes to appear normal, and people suffering delusions think they are real, Sharon would be saying "I'm talking to Cassie, don't you see her?"

    But Sharon has gotten away with everything she has done, why should she change? She burned down the ranch and Adam covered for her, no consequences.

    She's stolen, no consequences, and to many other things to post, no consequences for anything.

    She has totally ignored anything her Dr. has told her, stay away from Adam, stay away from Nick.

    What incentive is there for Sharon to get better? NONE because she knows she has the bi polar crutch.

    Yes there are many people that suffer with bi polar, and the jails are full of them. Bi polar does not give you a pass to run around and do what ever you want to whom ever you want. It's NOT ALL ABOUT SHARON, she is hurting everyone around her with her actions, including Faith. Not to mention destroying Summer's life and making her think she was about to bed her brother.

    Being Bi polar doesn't give her a pass to run around and mow everyone down in her path, any more then being an alcoholic gives anyone the right to drive around drunk and mow everyone down while drunk behind the wheel.

    Sharon is not alone, she does have a mother, who she has always thought she was better than.

    If Sharon can not and will not take her meds, she needs to be involuntarily committed, and she could be for the crimes she's committed. So she is not a danger to others around her, they deserve to be protected from Sharon. Who knows what lengths she would or could go to with Faith in order to "get closer to Nick" She is a danger to not only herself but to others, she has clearly demonstrated that. IMO.

    Quote JRTA:
    Quote Yale Steam: Sharon is an adult. She is off her meds, it's her fault and her responsibily, no one else's.

    Her being off her meds is her choice. Therefore all that she is done is her fault as sick as she may be.

    Being off her meds does not excuse her or give her a free pass for all that she has done.


    Yes, Sharon is responsible for taken her medication.

    That said, this is NOT a simple black and white situation and painting it as such, shows a lack of understanding for the illness and the many factors involved.

    But since there is no interest to understand the illness and just to bash the character, I won't waste my time.
    its not about bashing the character but sending a message to viewers who are BP that its okay to use it as an excuse to commit crimes and expect to get away with them cause you have a mental disorder. No one excused Patty Williams for her crimes did they? she is now in prison for what she did and she is indeed mentally ill but oh since its Sharon, dont bash her. Wrong!


    Exactly. I am so sick of Sharon getting a free pass and then some of her fans demanding the rest of us give her a free pass. Not taking her meds is all on Sharon. and Lying about it is ALL ON SHARON.

    I am sick of her Bi Polar being used as an excuse for everything. The court system does not care if she is a mental case. And neither do I. Sharon needs to get her shi t together and get going.

    In the ideal world, the answer to your question would be yes. But this isn't an ideal world and this is a complex illness (nevermind that it's a soap, and it's about the drama). There is only so much the Dr can do, and only so much they can do in regards to their patient and getting them to comply with therapy.

    The other thing is, the diagnosis is new. Less then a year. It can take years for an individual to find stability but first they have to accept the diagnosis of having Bipolar disorder and that IMO, hasn't happened here.

    Thank you for explaining JRTA. I didn't know the diagnosis can take that long. Youre right this is only a soap. I would love it if they cure Sharon tomorrow or say she has a brain tumor instead. Because it is so sad to read all the ignorant posts.
    "ignorant posts? I thought poster bashing was against the rules on this board? its no need to insult those posters who are expressing their opinions whether you agree or not. Its no need to insult people cause you dont share their opinions. I highly doubt posters who post here are ignorant,etc. You can always avoid threads which you deem "ignorant" as well.

    Poster bashing is against the rules. All you need to do is report these posts calling people ignorant or their posts ignorant.

    It is of course Sharon's responsibility to take her meds. No one is at fault in this except Sharon. Sharon doesn't want to listen to what her doctor says for the simple reason her doctor didn't tell her what she wants to hear. I don't care if Sharon felt better and decided she didn't need her meds, she made the decision to stop all be herself. No one forced her to. No one is to blame. There is no excuse. So tired of the excuses. She has hurt people and put Faith's safety at risk and for what? To get Nick. Please, he's no prize either. Sharon is selfish and doesn't care who she hurts to get what she wants. The meds are yet another example of that. Not that we really needed another example. But there is no blaming and no denying this one. This decision was Sharon's. And Sharon's alone.

    Sharon has the means and insurance to seek out a doctor and fess up what is going on. Noah is her son not her keeper. She knows what she is doing and not taking her meds and the consequences of those actions. She is an adult and its time she act like one.


    I agree. She is an adult and it's way past time she act like one. I don't expect her to however. She has never learned to be independent. She feels she must have a man (especially a Newman) to feel complete. She is weak and expects to be constantly rescued. She is incapable of standing on her own two feet and taking responsibility for her actions. I don't expect that to change. She needs to be put somewhere that she is no longer a danger to everyone she comes in contact with. Especially her children. She is happily manipulating Faith and is now a burden to Noah.

    Quote Charlie Big: This is completely Sharon's responsibility. Anyone who knows anything about mental illness and the civil rights laws, know this. It is not the doctor's responsibility to make Sharon meet her appoitments nor it is the responsibility of the doctor to force Sharon to take her meds. Sharon is in need of intense therapy and she needs to be stabilized on her meds before she can be receptive to any kind of therapy. She needs to be committed so that her doctor can watch her to make sure that she is taking the right dosage for her illness and and then to insure that she can be responsibile to continue to make her appointments and take her meds when she is on her own. This doesn't happen overnight. Sharon has some skitzo symptoms as well as Bi-Polar symptoms and it could be that her meds are not strong enough. Most all professionals realize that Bi-Polar patients almost always go off thier meds because they don't like the even feeling that it gives them. They prefer the hi's and lo's instead.

    Sharon is hard headed. She is lazy. She is co-dependent and she is very irresponsible. A doctor cannot interfer in that unless the patient comes for help and asks for it. She needs to be committed to get the proper help but then again, will she admit that and ask for the help? I am not thinking that she will. I guess it will depend on the writers. But they have given her the Bi-Polar disorder and made the character hallucinate her dead child so I don't see them just giving her a pill and calling her well. That wouldn't do justice to what they have given her and I think that it would be very insensative to the condition itself.

    I know it is a soap but please, I am so sick and tired of soaps making satire out of very serious conditions. It would be nice to see them do this some real justice. I would even like to see them adress the child abuse as well.


    I agree. I would love for them to address the emotional abuse that Sharon has inflicted on Faith. I hope they do, and I hope they don't drop the ball.

    Also, as for patients with BP missing the highs and lows, that is certainly true. But they are also aware of the dangers of not taking their meds. This was a decision Sharon made and a very bad decision. It goes to further the argument that Sharon needs to be institutionalized. If she can't be trusted to do the simple task of taking a pill, then how on earth should she be trusted to do anything else.

    She knows what happens when she goes off her meds. She knows the crazy things she was doing.. she knows what she has done since going off her meds. She does not care tho. Sharon is selfish and really she always has been. This is not a new thing with Sharon.

    No it is not a new thing at all. There is just no denying it anymore. It is all there for everyone to see what some of us have known for a long time. Sharon has never been the sweet good girl that some would have you believe. That was a myth and a fantasy. That person never existed. She has been manipulative and selfish since day one and that hasn't changed and I don't expect it to.
