I feel bad that I can't relate to depression, because I don't have it (I'm happy I don't have it, but I feel bad that I can't be very supportive because I don't know about it). I can relate to getting crap about mental conditions though, because I have Asperger's Syndrome, so people love to assume I'm automatically "weird." Also people make fun of me because Asperger's tends to give people high energy, so I tend to fidget around when sitting for a long period of time, etc. so some kids at school like making fun of me for that, too. I just feel like people think that Autism, or any other medical condition, shapes who someone is. Like, my band played at a school talent show, and the drummer and I are pretty energetic on stage. A lot of people thought the energy was entertaining, but a few kids thought I was energetic and threw my guitar at the amps at the end of the last song (yeah, I regret that decision LOL
) because I was "autistic."
Okay, rant over. This stuff just really gets to me, so I'm sorry.
BTW: My guitar and amps still work FYI.
