[Trigger warnings: people being stupid about mental illness, child abuse, near-misses with suicide, self-harm, some unpleasantness related to sex.]

[personal profile] kaigou has done an excellent job over here, talking about what it's like to be the person who wants to be more like all the successful friends who totally rock the world but somehow something in their brain just keeps getting in the way - and that something is ADD. (Seriously, if you want to know what it's like to be in my head, read through the "things your daughter will probably face" part. I 100% see myself in that.)

So I'm not going to talk about that piece because it's already been done. Instead I'm going to talk about what it's like to be the partner of a funny, charismatic, creative person who lives with brainweasels that are best described as Bipolar Disorder type II.

Those trigger warnings? I'm not kidding. Last chance to avoid. )

I love my spouse and kids, and my friends.

I like my job most of the time.

I do NOT like the body I am stuck in.

I do NOT like the brain/body interface I am stuck with.

I do NOT like the constant lack of money that persists despite now making the salary that once upon a time would have meant "Look at me, I HAVE MONEY!" And by "once upon a time", I mean five years ago.

I do NOT like wanting to write about Interesting Things but feeling as though I only have the ability to whine.

I just hope I'm not any of y'all's Ugly Girlfriend. I mean, seeing as how I'm even fatter than what they use as examples of hideousness.

('sides, is it just me, or is the blonde in particular actually really cute??)
