Sometimes it takes someone else’so true ignorance to light a fire…
I made a decision to actually respond to a random blog post that for some reason popped up in my newsfeed. It was very, very anti-vaccine/conspiracy theorist, and I do tend to be vocal about how wrong that is. Per usual, when it came to a “cite your sources” challenge arrived, no sources on their side were given, instead they pulled things out of this blog that have nothing to do with vaccines or autism with the express purpose of shaming me. However, I am not ashamed of my religion. Then they tried to make me feel shameful because they saw that I had written the post about my lithium problem. And having a mental illness is something you hide.
If he ever sees this, thank you sir, your nasty comments didn’t send me regressing into a sobbing pile of humiliation as you intended, but instead gave me the push I needed to start a new blog about being open about my Bipolar disorder. I had been kicking the idea around for a while, but didn’t do much with it. Well…here it is .
