Raleigh County Delegate Ron Thompson spoke with the Beckley Register-Herald about his struggles with bipolar depression.

Thompson said he is continuing treatment, but a macho attitude kept him seeking help sooner.

He said his family finally talked him into seeking treatment.

Thompson has been absent from the legislature since last March because of bipolar depression.

He plans on returning to his duties, but hasn't set a date yet.
