I wrote this five minutes ago, after another person insulted me for being a "fucked up bipolar".
This is for anti-stigma and mental illness awareness. We don't have to be ashamed of having a disease.
No, you don't have bipolar. But you have bipolar cells.
Maybe I have bipolar. But that doesn't mean I deserve your stupid slurs. I'm not ashamed of myself. I speak out about this illness, because I live with it, and it's a huge part of my life. Sugarcoating it, hiding it, living in denial or being ashamed will only make my life harder. It takes a lot of strength to battle this kind of intensity every day, to accept help and go in and out of hospital. It takes strength to be open about that too. But it takes no strength at all to try to bring someone down for something they can't control.
Grow up. We're all bipolar. I'm just bipolar in a different way
