      Whether in my college class or in general discussion with my friends, I have heard several times that without realising the gravity of the illness and terminology people use it to refer to normal circumstances and behavior. Once a teacher of mine referred to a student’s change of thought during a discussion as to bipolar disorder(in a fun way and laughed at her not at all funny joke) but that wasn’t funny for a person like me who has grown up seeing one of her family member suffering from this illness. The illness isn’t as simple as just a change of thought. It is terrible enough to spoil someone’s entire life if it is severe BPD. Not only this, insomnia, Alzheimer and depression are another few terms that are used casually for fun references.

      Shouldn’t people realise that few things aren’t a fun topic, there is a lot of trauma and struggle attached to it? Shouldn’t we be more sensitive and aware of the mental health illnesses around us?

      I’m tired of people calling other bipolar because they change their mind, it shows their ignorance surrounding mental health issues.
      Also people really need to stop asking “What do you have to be depressed about?”

        Yes even I am tired of it! People are very ignorant of such a sensitive topic

      Even depression is taken as such a casual term, you can’t be depressed because your favourite show has had a season finale. Depression sucks all good feelings out of you, it can make getting out of the bed a tough job in the morning, and it is not being lazy.
