BPD: “Crazy” Like A Fox!

Shoot – I’ve done it again, as per the norm. Something has come out of my mouth and is completely brilliant and crazy all at the same time…

“Wow”… my partner says… “We have to start recording this stuff – you know? The stuff that comes out of you sometimes. Wow…”

Hmmm… I just re-read through my first sentence and realised that I did think it was brilliant, but maybe it was just crazy…

The next day a new girl is sitting beside me. We sit in classrooms that are teaching us life skills “normal” people developed when they were children and growing up. She’s a beautiful, young, BPD, in the throws of having to start into adulthood while battling this illness…

I ask the teacher a clarifying question that makes all the other students, who have their own mental illnesses, look at me with a bit of a tilted subdued “wtf!?” look.

“See – it’s that kind of eccentric stuff that I ask about that makes other people look at me weird… Even the crazy people look at me like I’m crazy!” I tell her.

“That’s why I’m quiet.” she says back. “But you are far from crazy. If anything, everything you say to me is insightful. *smiley*”.

“That’s because you’re the same level of crazy as me silly!” I tell her and chuckle to myself. She laughs and nods and we continue on with the class and the rest of the day.
