Do I talk like this because of my bipolar disorder?

http://www.democraticunderground.com/10028614365

Am I a bad person? Am I stupid? I know my intent was meant to be energizing and productive and I can't blame others for not getting that.

So do I blame me? How harshly do I blame myself? Is this a big deal? Little deal?

Am I shit or just bad at talking? Am I good at talking but a little confusing?

Should I internalize this? But I like me. I like my energy. I like my goals.

Sigh

1. The bipolar is most likely to get you ruminating over it, like you are now. I think in a detached

way, one can be excited by the changes in that you are clearly witnessing a stupefying and terrifying era, but when we change lenses to a close up filtered with compassion, the excitement level drops.

My bipolar and anxiety are definitely destabilizing, and have been since the election. May we come through this time mentally and emotionally intact!

2. I know. And I do have compassion. I guess I should've communicated it better.

Thank you.

6. I missed the family bipolar disorder

and just went to garden variety depression. No, I don't think this is part of your disorder, although beating yourself up over it is.

It was just a poor choice of words for a lot of people. Excitement might come later when more Trumpers wake up and smell the new Depression and the resistance starts to get YUGE. It's just not the right word for now.

It's not like we all haven't done that at some point. Nobody's going to hate you forever over it.

7. Then there's people who won't let it go.

Users that just harass and harangue no matter how much you ask for forgiveness and explain yourself.

Those people can't be real. And if they're like that in real life, well... I'd ignore them there too.

8. They might be fighting their own brain weasels

If nobody listens the first time, then just walk away.

I know it's hard to do sometimes when there's a pile-on and you think it's unfair, but walking away is the healthy thing to do.

Trash the thread. Move on.
