This is from 2008. Yet another idiotic assumption that disregards the fact that increased diagnoses just might have something to do with increased awareness, as well as … facts.
By the way – bipolar? Bullshit. Every single woman I have ever known has been bipolar for SOME part of her life – one week here, nine months there, ever since her mother stopped calling – something. When I was a kid, bipolar meant either the twin axis ends of the earth or maybe a bear who swung both ways. Now it’s an excuse for every other girl whose hormones are conducting a human body remake of Raging Bull.
They didn’t have bipolar when I was growing up. If they did – my mom would’ve been called TRIpolar. She could smack one kid with a wooden spoon, ask a second kid if she was retarded and give a third kid a sweet little kiss on the head – all within four and a half seconds. And ya know what? Each one of us almost always deserved what we had coming.
