You wouldn’t break up with someone or end a friendship over:
- a broken leg
- cardiac issues
- a blood-related disease
- a cancer diagnosis
In fact, you would probably support them during their down times even MORE.
Why do I GET ATTACKED for the changes in my levels of serotonin, dopamine or norephephrine?
How is THAT fair?
How is that different?
How come a friend or girlfriend with a “physical” illness get extra support in her down times while one with a “mental” illness gets the BLAME and SHAME?
HOW DOES THAT MAKES ANY SENSE?!
Why do you get to do so, attack me as if it is a personal choice…
over and over and OVER…
when it is a change in my brain chemistry…
that is BEYOND MY CONTROL AND COMPREHENSION?
How is that fair?
