Alright now…Help me out here citizens of tumblr. Girl I know says “Okay She has a “mental illness” who cares? If my husband ever had anything like that, i’d just tell him to get over it.” …..As an individual with Bipolar Disorder (dear god it’s now out there.) I found this to be hugely insulting. Granted I don’t naturally run around saying “Come get your dose of Bipolar Disorder right here! This girl! Come on people!” But I digress….It seems that you should
A. Not disregard Mental Illness in such a way. and
B. Not say things such as this out loud when you really have no knowledge of what the people around you may be dealing with.
This is new to me, and i’m not taking this diagnosis very well. One person says something like that, and any good part of my day is ruined. I did my best to speak up about it, explaining that mental illness is serious and not to be made into a “case of the monday’s on a friday” instead of what it is.
Someone help me out of the rut I just fell into. I’m feeling incredibly shitty.
On another note, my grandfather won’t stop humming hymnals. I can hear this perfectly clear from my room, and the noise is slowly killing me. This begins at 6 AM and doesn’t end until roughly 11 PM. Thank God for a 9-5 job. I might need to throw something.
