Perhaps, stigma is really a "point of view". More personally, our own "point of view". Because we look at others thinking they "know every thing about us" additude. Maybe this is just "normal" for us who have bp and ocd for that matter. Is the challange for us to just
and continue to believe in ourselves? Or do we need to hide in that "shell" around us, for the unknown -to "protect us" ?
An amazing vent. I'm glad you got it all out. It just seems a little not "like you" when most of your posts are geared toward the learned knowledge of bp and ocd. Perhaps you have really found the "answer" to dealing with stigma and knowledge. Anyway,it could be a your own "serenade."
