Mental Illness and ME, A Post By Biddie

http://bigdustydude.blogspot.com/2008/03/mental-ilness-and-me-guest-post-by.html

This is a guest post that I did over at Shawns place. I needed to vent, but I wasn't ready to share my thoughts with the masses. It has been a few weeks now, and I reposting it. Just skip over it if you have already read it.

Hi B,yes I read that.

People who are un-understanding of anothers mental illnesses are just igronant... Pffffttt to them.

Biddie said...

Heather - You are so right. Mind you, I am way more tolerant of lots of different people/things since I have grown older.
Anyway, that is just one of the many reasons that you rock :)

Why is someone giving you shit still? I think that your humor is very healthy and a good thing. Never give it up. I always enjoy reading what you have to say. You keep me going some days. I love ya Biddie!

You know my thoughts on this Biddie...having spent all that time on the psyche ward gives one a different perspective.

Most of the world runs from mental illness of any sort because they don't understand it and are scared of it. We might be contagious you know!!!!

Have a look at Sweet Irene - http://zoethout.blogspot.com/

She is bi-polar with a personality disorder as well thrown in.....but she talks about it everyday and tells us how she's doing. She's smart - articulate - and a sweetie really.

btw - the chances are 1 in 4 of everyone suffering from some type of mental illness in their lifetime. So whoever is calling you crazy - might just end up calling herself that one day.

Just sniff and move on girl - you are the better one.

You aren't crazy babe. It's everybody else ;-)

Look. You are you and you're a fighter.

Never stop. You inspire me and, I suspect, many others.

One day I'm going to get out there and buy you a few ok?

Well said. And I truly believe if we don't develop some sense of humor about our illnesses, mental or physical, that means the illness is winning. We have to, its a coping mechanism - I read once that some of our best comedians have their materials because of their "dark sides and/or tragedies they cope(d) with. Yeah, dangling whatever there.

Anyway thanks for your courage to be outspoken. I know you are helping others along the way, and if someone doesn't like it then they have the problem, not you!
