Why do we get triggered by the most minuscule things? My old pdoc would say…“its the illness”.
It’s just the way our brains are Hardwired.
Any little thing triggers me.
The Meds do so much.
If our parents weren’t the diagnosed mentally ill, try noticing if they have felt or unfelt headaches. Because I think headaches can be a mental illness bringing a stop to the mind.
You just made me to think. My mom use to drink these pink pills called Motival together with Valium. I just read that Motival is an anti psychotic…huh…I never knew my mother was psychotic in any way. Well in any case I now know from whom I might have inherited my MI from.
I know who I got my psychotic tendencies from. My dad used to be so paranoid. He used to beat us up if we even looked at him funny, or so he thought. He would always go into his rages and hold the whole family in pure terror. He wasn’t even a drunk. He didn’t even drink. He didn’t have to. He was just naturally crazy. I was sure glad to get out of there as soon as I turned eighteen.
I’m sorry to hear that you had such a terrifying upbringing. At least you got out of there. My mom loved me more than the other children. I now think that she saw a little bit of her own crazyness in me, thats why.
