I have a friend who has been diagnosed with several mental illnesses. Bipolar, Personality disorder, Eating Disorder, Depression, ADD and the list goes on. She has a problem making friends because the first thing she does is bring up all her mental disorders. I love her to death, but I hate hanging out with her because when I do she is really pushy about everything. First, she lives far away and doesn't drive so I have to go get her and I am currently unemployed so I can't afford the gas and neither can she. Secondly, she gets really pushy about going to get alcohol and when we do have drinks she ends up having a mental break down the next day. She will have panic attacks and keep on saying she's weird and no one likes her. When I try to offer her words of advice she just says "I have a mental illness". She defines herself by her mental illness and I keep trying to get her to realize that all the therapy and medication in the world wont do anything for her unless she is willing to put for the effort to change things around. I can't stand it!! It's like she sucks the life out of me when I am around her. I feel so stuck with her because she uses these diagnoses as excuses to why she can't ever do anything with her life, much less just chill and have a fun time. I just don't know what to do anymore.
