Well what can I say.
If you do not know by now I will let you in on a not so secret = I have BPD/BP as well as physical disabilities which is temperamental just like me. I was diagnosed a very long time ago as a manic depressive then BPD and then BP and now I am who I am.
Now do not take offence if I say I am nuts because I am in more ways than one. The first part is being scatty which is nothing to do with my mental state but I can tell you this for nothing it certainly does not help. I am very open about my mental state especially as I go up and I go down and up and down in the space of hours of each other and then I have weeks of each other. As well as being scatty I am forgetful, silly, crazy, fabulous, glitzy, colourful. Those are my good points the bad I could tell you about but instead just ask me.
I can not believe that even in this era there is so much stigma.
I SAY EMBRACE YOUR MENTAL HEALTH!!!!!
I SAY STUFF THE IDIOTS WHO DO NOT OR DO NOT WISH TO UNDERSTAND THE COMPLEXITY OF THE WONDERFUL PERSON YOU ARE!!!!!
I SAY TELL THE WORLD HOW COOKILIOUSLY CREATIVE YOU ARE!!!!!!
I SAY SHOW PEOPLE EVERY SIDE TENACIOUSLY TALENTS!!!!!!
The world is so dark, dull, deary and in despair. Adding your colour can only brighten the sun to shine on you and make people smile. I am lucky not to have negative people who do not understand or know me. I take strength from my friends and just how wonderful they are. BY THE WAY YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE. I am blessed that people are kind and especially patient with me. People see my mania and tell me to chill and some see me when I am dull and they breathe and colour me in.
Everyone knows some one who has or has suffered from depression, suicidal thoughts, BPD, BP, OCD or SAD or many of the other mental health labels we can be given. If you don’t then someone is keeping quiet, WHY WHY are they quiet. Do they think you wont like them any more or understand them or ignore them and dump them. Their silence speaks volumes.
One thing we have stopped doing is talking and listening and before you say we do we do!!! STOP AND THINK ! BE HONEST WITH YOURSELF!! ASK YOURSELF AM I!!! We are not perfect we slip up and forget to catch up with our friends especially when they are quiet and we do not hear from them. I am terrible for it, and I need to lead by example so I messaged my dear friend Danielle today and it was just a quickie but we will be meeting up properly for a good chin wag and a splurting of guff.
Now I am going to leave on a good point
Thanks to Lisa Marie I have been inspired
I am finding my inner colours and its oranges yellows and reds for now and I will take it.
