Well not exactly, fears that they have some of that big bad 'mental illness' stuff, and all the misunderstanding that goes along with that term

> I have no problem admitting I have mental illness to anyone. However I find that I get less raised eyebrows if I omit the word depression ( "what, you mean you sit around crying all day?") & talk about 'mood swings' & mental imbalance. In other words, give the impression I'm some sort of nutter (which some of those who know me might agree with:-) )

Dunno, never really ahd any, nor felt need to, i am a little nuts, just like everyone else i meet, but have always felt my problems were purely biological or, just a normal human reaction to the incredible stress that can accompany any disabling illness
