One of my current biggest hates is people who use “I’ve got mental illness” to bail themselves out of acting like a complete arsehole. It seems to be a vogue that has popularized since The Jeremy Kyle Show came and went. The matter is, I work alongside mentally ill people, and workers on all levels that provide support. It’s pretty sound that anybody who suffers from these tendencies will hide them rather than blare them out as an excuse, because they don’t want the world knowing their problems. Similar to those whom threaten suicide. Most people just do it and leave a note, they seldom threaten it first. I have my little ways of knowing just how ‘mentally ill’ someone is. So I warn thee all now, I know BS when I see it so far as this excuse goes.
