First, please give me feedback about the new look. I really like everything but the blurred title, which disturbs me. But typically I'm way more sensitive to that than most people. If it bugs you, please speak up. You won't offend me. I try to select themes that are friendly to bipolars with sensory defensiveness.
Today I encountered a weird thing. We were at Chipolte and I made some joke about my multiple illnesses. I did not say what I was referring to. My mother kept shushing me, like it's rude to say you have something wrong in public. I then was (quietly) quite offended as that is my call. If I want to wear clothes with I AM BIPOLAR printed all over, that's my call.
On the plus side I got to go to an outdoor arts and crafts fair and walk all over it, then went shopping for several hours. That's huge in my life.
