I feel I suffer extreme quirkiness combined with a periodic antisocial bent.

I fall somewhere between Calvin and Hobbes and Bloom County on the social meter. Mi? Depends on your POV, from my view it's everyday life. All systems go, make it so.

I suck at trying to be funny. I've been told my humor isnt very humorous and people think I'm being serious when I'm just joking.

Anyway I dont view myself as mental ill or sick. It's just who I am and I've met others exactly like me in person.

Today, I discovered my real illness: Alergy to poverty.
I'm bankrupt again.
And if I ever come around some money, I'll blow it again.
It's my form of self destruction. I like it better than physical pain thought.

When I have money to burn, I'm happy.
So What I have is MDD. Monetary Depending Depression.

Cheers.

PS: I'm not fully depressed yet. I still can make minimun payments, hehe.

Thanks for mixing it up with humor. We need more laughs to help tolerate the other side.

I have a genetic disease that adversely affects my brain chemistry and causes me to process emotion differently than other people. I'd consider myself mentally ill when I'm manic. I'm not sure there's any other way to describe the horrible state I was in. I'm also mentally stable at times and a million other things. Mental illness is not my only defining trait, but it sticks out more than the others when it happens. I'm busting my *** to stay balanced though. My illness cannot be cured, but I'll fight it with all that I have to control it.

I like this!

Racking my brain and can't come up with anything really. I've sometimes referred to myself as "the whole spice rack", but that doesn't cover the depressive parts. Maybe "the whole spice rack and a pile of dirt". Heavy, messy and very dark.

I have a hard time with the MI label on account if how it is periodic, you know? Like, when I'm doing fine, I'm fine, and can certainly be more well- adjusted than many who "don't" have MI. (Don't is in quotes because there's a whole lot of dysfunction out there). But when I'm not well, then I'm not well, therefore ill. If that makes sense.

When I stay on my meds, I don’t feel mentally ill at all. I start thinking the whole thing was just a big misunderstanding.

Before the meds, I felt like there was something terribly wrong with my brain and that science couldn’t understand.

Idk where I stand in general. ....I guess, yeah, I see myself as a person with mental illness. But it defines me a lot less since I found medicine and routines that mostly control the symptoms.
