I tried to start communicating with him which in turn made him extremely angry. He started communicating with...

    Losing my mind

    I feel like I'm going to break in half. My stomach hurts my whole body is hot and cold at the same time and I'm shaking so much I can barley type this. I feel like my breathing is getting harder... Like I can hear all this noise and voices in my head and on the outside I am sitting here smiling and no one would ever know that I am literally losing my shit over here.

  • I get along with my family, except this one sister I have. She is so bothersome. I told her I don't think we should talk anymore, and she continued to message me several times after this.

    Bipolar disorder stigma

    So there's a general stigma associated with mental illness in popular culture, and even moreso (I think) regarding schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.
