Re: Being disabled due to mental illness
Unfortunately, many days I tend to look like something is wrong with me; be it from severely poor grooming, manic signs with endless talking/intrusive behaviors, to tendency to isolate myself in the dark for days.
Replying "I'm tired or haven't slept, or I'm depressed, I had too much caffeine and have high energy, all tend to work with my family. They now ask me if I'm taking my medication.
Those are my signs and symptoms with medication and therapy; this realization depressing me all the more.
I'd like to know what it is like to feel joy over little things in my life, or feel content and relaxed.
Teil-it's a shame how the system works. On a side note, I think it's great that you have a boyfriend. I'm at the point where I have no friends b/c of my erratic behaviors and depression.
