Memory Hack

As is rather obvious, I Memory Hack could care less about the stigma. It is a part of what makes me me, and for that I am thankful. That's right. I'm thankful for bipolar syndrome because without it I simply would not be myself. That's not to say that I don't understand those who are fearful of coming out or coming to terms with it. I do. Simply because for the longest time in my life I had a hard time even admitting it to myself.One is in the fear of being labeled crazy. Society holds this horrible belief that if you are suffering from a mental illness, then you must be crazy. The way I choose to look at is, what is crazy, what is normal. Neither truly holds a definition of someones character or can be defined by a certain set of defining characteristics so who cares if I'm normal or crazy, I'm simply me.Another is because of the way our society works. If you do something others view as dumb, you're a retard. If you are overly emotional you're bipolar, if you're not the same cut of mould as everyone else you're crazy. With so many derogatory terms thrown around on a regular basis why in the world would anyone want to associate themselves with bipolar syndrome. They simply won't. And as a result their health, and very lives become at risk.
