Default It's Sad When...

All of your close friends mistake your mood swings for being a heartless bitch. They just don't understand that when everything isn't working in the attic that you have to take care of yourself and ignore everybody else. You try to explain to them over and over that you cannot control what goes on, but then they call you a bitch to your face because you care more about yourself then others... and you try telling them that you HAVE to care about yourself more because of this mental illness. Then it just depresses you when they start ignoring you and move on to a new friend.

It drives me up the wall. Anybody else have the same problem?

So if you care to find me, look to the western sky.
As someone told me lately, everyone deserves a chance to fly.

I've had that problem before. Thankfully, I have a few good friends who always stick by me and don't get mad if I have to ditch them for a mental health day sometimes, as long as I call them later so they know I'm ok. They also appreciate it if I attempt to reschedule, heh. When I first went on meds, I had a bit of a personality change, just due to feeling so much better about myself and about life. So most of the flakier friends left me then and there, they didn't like the new me who wasn't afraid to speak my mind and make suggestions. The ones who stuck with me have learned to deal with my bad days though. They have to, if they want to be around for the good. xP

I've never had anyone come up to me and tell me off whenever I'm having one of those days. I have lost a lot of friends though, almost all of the friends I've had ignore me. Only a couple have really stuck with me through all my mood swings for the last four years. I'm in the process of making new friends though. That's the best thing about University, you get to start all over.

I haven't been diagnosed with Bipolar or anything like that, but I've been dealing with some wild swings in the last couple of years. I've had halucinations and I've been caught having conversations with myself on a number of occasions. Don't know exactly what that means, that's why I'm seeing a psychiatrist tomorrow.

It's sad when you really find out who your real friends are.

People with special needs of any kind have always faced a kind of discrimination based on ignorance. I'm sorry you guys confront that.

At least those who appreciate you and understand you really can be trsuted. it's a pianful way to find out who's worth it, but at least you know you can count on them when you need them.



And Colin, good luck tomorrow. I'll be thinking of you.

guys i'm so glad I found this forum. I am having major issues, and I'm getting to the conclusion that its a mental disorder of some sort. I have anger problems for NOTHING. I can not even deal with people, or hang out with the many more. Talk about losing your friends. I stay away from them completely, I used to have lots of them until I realized that everyone pisses me off and I do see a reason to see people. I mean i have couple friends for distance friendship but other then that I dont care to associate with anyone. More like a loner. I also am a bit scared to associate with people b/c things come out of my mouth and I can not control it mean is all anger and i dont mean it but I can not stop it and I hurt people that way. I dont know what I should do but i'm a bit embarrassed to go to a doctor i feel like he can not help me even if he tried b/c he's not sitting inside my brain. But I came to this conclusion that I need some calming meds any idea if anything over the counter works to calm me down. I truly just like to hang out by myself. Is that weird or what?
anyone feel the same please fill me in.

Its not uncommon to decide that u dont like ur friends, but the abrupt change from liking them one day and hating everyone the next is a bit of a concern.

Are u scared to meet people? Do u get like a sort of anxiety when ur around others?

And would u describe ur anger as being extremely irritable?.... like absolutely everything about ur friends, or just other people, irritates u and u cant stand to b near them?

Haha. An update on this 'friend'.

I hear from a friend of ours that she hates me and that she is irate just because I was considering applying for the same college as her.

I confront her about it, telling her that she is the phoniest person that I have ever met because I confronted her about it before and she lied to my face, and that she's immature for hating me for thinking about applying to the same college ( I mean, this is my future at stake, and she's mad over me wanting a future because a certain college fits my needs), and I say that since she won't do it, I'll burn the bridge for her.

She responds: Fine, I admit it! I can't stand to be around you, I've never liked you, you only act Bipolar to get attention. I'm not immature or phony, I just hate confilct and you're just an attention seeker. I'm mad because I want to go to a college where I can escape all of my problems here, like you! By the way, is it just my side fo the bridge that is burnt? (giving herself some credit because she thinks that she's oh-so great and mighty and that I'm just trying to stir drama) Please don't tell Laura (our boss) about it because I don't want to get fired!

My Response: Quit fooling yourself and open your eyes. I have no respect for you. *walks off*

Haha. It's been a good day... the weasel has finally been shot.

So if you care to find me, look to the western sky.
