today at my group session, which I should mention is for people with various disorders, including autism and down syndrome, on top of SZ and BP and others, a group of self proclaimed “Realists” came in and crashed our meeting.
They told us our condtions were “Fake, just excuses to not work and mooch off the system meant for the truly disabled”
They went on to yell and scream at us, making two of the more severely autistic people to break down in tears, calling us con artists and ‘welfare jockeys’. One of them got in my face when I told them to shut up they were making the autistic people scared. I almost punched him. I almost killed him really. He asked me what my F-ing problem was and I told him this.
“I am a paranoid schizophrenic with bi polar, manic depression, and a very short temper” He shoved me…I took two steps forward but Cassie stopped me, shes our groups leader, she is in her sixties, has had depression for the last forty years, and lost her son to SZ related depression and psychosis when he jumped off a bridge thinking he was diving into a swimming pool.
“They aren’t worth it.” Then she turned to them and pulled out her taser. “You have the count of three to get out before I tase one of you and call the cops.”
They refused to leave, so we called the cops. it was a huge mess. our group has been banned from the community hall for ‘disturbing the peace’ and now we have no where to meet. Mean while these “Realists” who said they were a 'division of the All American Tea Party" are only getting a warning for gathering on private property without permission.
It took me this long to calm down…it is almost 11 pm for me as the time of this post. my group meeting was at 12 noon. and was ended after just six minutes inside.
These…these HUMANS, were disgusting, just because our health problems are WITH our heads doesn’t mean they are IN our heads or fake! it made me so mad, so furious. typing with one hand right now and may have to go to the ER later because I punched my front door when I got home and my left hand is the size of a soft ball.
Stupid I know, I shouldn’t have let them get to me like that, but COME ON!!! These people are stuck in the middle ages, when mental illness ‘didn’t exist’…They were spewing all this crap to us the whole time the cops were trying to solve the problem…things that made no sense what so ever.
“Those voices in your head are angels telling you to die!”
“Autism is just an excuse for parents who can’t raise their kids to be respectful!”
“Depression is just being weak, get the hell over it you pussies!”
and my personal favorite
“Abortion is wrong! But you should have been Aborted any you filthy Welfare Jockeys!”
