Just Jot It January 10th – 2016 (sane)

Just Jot It January 10th – 2016 (sane)JJJ 2016Now I am a person with several mental disorders, one of which is Bipolar Disorder and another being Borderline Personality Disorder. Others not necessary to bore you with now.

I do not consider myself insane. I am as sane as most of the so-called normals. Sure I have my moments or episodes, but they don’t make me insane. I have been hospitalized yes, but not constrained as they would someone they didn’t consider sane enough to walk into the hospital without constraints.

I think you can have mental disorders and not be insane. Sane is subjective anyhow. Who decides who is sane and who is not. I haven’t asked my therapist if she thinks I am sane or insane. I doubt she would think I am insane.

    Sending all my love to you. I don’t think anyone would have the right to determine whether someone is insane or not 🙂

You are a big help to me and everyone else who reads your regular posts as well as all the other posts on your other blogs.
