Ok, then. I don't really see why you think I need your approval. I don't really see why you care so much about my diagnoses.

I think i might be bipolar, but the highs are addictive, I'm not sure I want to dull them.

Theism is to believe what other people claim, Atheism is to ask "why should I".

You stay awake for long periods of time without being tired and do some really crazy things on the highs out of the blue?

RE: Have you suffered from a mental illness? Did it change your life?
It's a misconception that people with mental 'disorders' fall completely within the descriptions for the disorder. Mental disorders aren't like diseases that are caused by a specific thing and always have the same symptoms. They're labels to describe people with similar traits or conditions. Someone can be schizophrenic without hearing voices, and someone can have SPD without being indifferent to criticism or sexuality. And the cause can be social, a result of abuse, brain damage, biochemical abnormalities such as serotonin deficiency, or simply being different than other people (as can be the case with personality disorders). With mental disorders (except sub-subtypes) it's always a sliding scale. A diagnosis is based on someone meeting criteria above a certain threshold, and treatment methods depend on which criteria are met.

If something can be destroyed by the truth, it might be worth destroying.

I forgo a night of sleep at least once a week, sometimes two. have crash days of sleep to balance.

Every week? And what do you do when you don't sleep? How are your energy levels throughout?

I suffer from a terrible case of theism, many might say.
