Or do you think people use it as an excuse?
Oh, gosh, no it is not. It is a real, organic illness! What makes you think it is fake?
Well, it's real. But as with anything. you have people who lie about having it or you have those who have been misdiagnosed so it seems like "everyone has it."
My sister is bipolar and I struggle with how much of how she behaves is her bipolar and how much is just what she thinks she can get away with.
Many of the things she does, are simply things everyone did when they were about 14, but outgrew as they got older.
What do YOU think, OP?
the very definition of mental illness is not being able to control themselves.
Quoting bitchezbecrazy:I do think people use at as an excuse. just because you have a mental illness doesnt mean you need to act on it and be all crazy, plenty of people have mental illnesses and control their behavior.
No I am ... but refuse to let my family Dr. know that,.
