Okay, I’m gonna go write now, because I’ve procrastinated long enough (damn it). Back to your regularly scheduled Friday night on LJ!

I realised a little while ago that while occasionally I mention my Asperger's and Bipolar Disorder, I never really talk about it openly. And I began to think that that's really very remiss of me, because I think these things should be talked about. There's still a bit of a stigma surrounding mental health issues (although I have noted a bit of an upswing in inclusion in contemporary fiction, which I approve of greatly), and the only way to get rid of that is to talk about it, discuss it. So, seeing as I'm currently in an upswing and am trying desperately to procrastinate instead of writing my DTH fic, under the cut is a long winded and rambly post about my own personal experiences with these two mental health issues.
*There are mentions of attempted suicide and suicidal behaviour, so please don't read if that makes you uncomfortable in any way.( Read more... )
So, for anyone who bothered to read my long, rambly, and remarkably self involved post (and thanks, it means a lot!), please know that you can comment on absolutely anything I said here today. And if anyone feels like they might identify with any of it, and would maybe like to talk about it, my door (or inbox) is always open. :) Okay, still wide awake and bouncy right now, even though it's 1:30am, so I think I'm going to go do some ironing while watching LotR, because elves, man, they're so cool! <3
