Kate White, our anxiety blogger here at HealthyPlace asked the question: what does a mental illness feel like?
Well, that’s a big question. I’ve been writing for years to answer it. In today’s bipolar video though, I expose one facet of crazy that really ruins my day.
I Hate Myself
Depression makes you hate yourself. Not for everyone, I suppose, but for me, it does. So I’m constantly trying to convince myself I’m not the awful disgusting creature my bipolar brain, my crazy, keeps telling me I am.
Here I talk about how a tiny interaction with my friend inflames the crazy, and even though I can see the fire, it still burns.
