Haha yes I actually got a bit of a hypochondriac feeling while posting that, but I definately think I have SOMETHING. Maybe not bipolar, but a smaller
and much less severe form of something similar perhaps.
I guess it's better I don't go in and get it checked. I don't want to be medicated or locked away. If something is wrong with me, I'm fine with it
and it's just who I am. I'm sure you feel the same way. Yes, the ordinary people are just the ones who haven't been diagnosed yet
. I'm not a
hazard to myself or others, so just let me go craaaazy (so to speak
Honestly, I definately see little quirks in EVERYONE. It doesn't matter how 'normal' they seem at first. So yeah, it's not just people who are
classified as "bipolar" or "autistic" that exhibit this sort of thing. Everyone has some sort of weird obsessive part of their behaviour that
makes them do or think things irrationally, whether on a large scale or almost unnoticable.
I would love to hear a podcast about how you actually came to find out you were bipolar & manic/how you were diagnosed. How did they drag you into the
psychiatrists office for the first time? Or did you always know something was a little different? (Sorry if you covered this in your second podcast).
If you can find some time in your precious Serpo-Mania to discuss such things, I'm sure lots of other people would like to hear as well
PS: Sorry if anything I say offends you. I don't know exactly what all the faus-pas are when it comes to discussing mental health.
