The "illess talking"....

When you get angry....has anyone ever said "Now, you know this is the illness talking."

I outed my ex for the horrible things he did to me in my journal...that I thought only my friends could read. But, turned out...his mother could read it.

She called me a liar and said "You know this is the illness talking" and she said she didn't believe a word I said.

How DARE she? I have every right to be upset at my ex for everything he did to me....and everything I said he did is the TRUTH!

I hate the fact that once someone knows I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder they think that all I do is lie....and that I say things I don't mean.

I was angry...yes. But, I had every right to be! I wasn't lying!

I hate being labled....

Re: The "illess talking"....

That's a problem. Even Ts have said that to me, invalidating my reality and the truth my situation in life. It seems sometimes as it everything we do and think is up for scrutiny and then blamed on us being "sick". People don't give us credit for being intelligent people with real life problems just like everyone else's.

It's angering to be judged a mental incompetent who lies. You know you're not. Can you find support from others who will support you in this?

It's her problem, not yours. She's ignorant, and probably won't change. IF you can, ignore her, and try to associate with people who value and trust you.

We are not an illness.

I am so sorry this happened. Makes me feel so alone and ostrasized, in a way, as if they don't want to admit us to "civilian" life. It's her you can't trust, for her judgement is way off.

You have my support.
