It does get me irritated when you're in the black pits, and someone suggets you eat something to feel better, or put a funny movie in the video player. Oh, or how about "What's wrong?" You tell them you are face down on the floor for no reason, and they say that you can't be depressed then.
You can try to irritate THEM like I have done by referring to it as being gifted. I tell them I would not have the wonderful things I have if I had not had all the chutzpah to do it, which stems from the mania. I actually believe that if I hadn't been born with this, I might be in very bad shape and still in my little hometown, living the life my mother expected.
