Just come up. I personally have no problem with considering myself mad or crazy at times. I'm sure I act that way and have come across that way. I've just come across a comment on YouTube though with someone saying that BBC should not have called the mental health series they're airing "It's a MAD world".
I don't see a problem with it. Partly because joking about it some of time has made it easier to deal with. At the time it's no fun, but after, not mocking the illness and amongst fellow sufferers or just to yourself, you can laugh about it. You understand how hard and horrible it is and you know it's no joke...but you can laugh. You see...I don't know how to describe it, but afterwards, I can see some humour in it, which is better than sitting at home depressed as crap about the fact that I was to terrified to answer the telephone last week and going over and over it in my head...I do that anyway, but after a while, I can joke about it.
I know there's people that say it's never okay...but I don't understand that. I don't like mocking it, when someone making it seem easier to deal with than it really is. I've been told that I shouldn't laugh things that happened because of my mental illness. But I just can't be serious about it one hundred percent of the time, or there's no way I'm going to be able to deal with it.
On the subject of Anxiety, there's a very interesting meme on Tumblr that's cropped up. I don't like memes usually. But, sometimes I can just spend hours laughing at the memes on Tumblr that relate to the illnesses I have. I don't have a problem pif eople don't like that. That's fine. I'm not trying to preach. I suppose it's almost laughing at yourself, and it's between anxiety sufferers who have also okay with you laughing at anxiety, we all know it's tough and horrible, and most likely, we can all laugh at it and still relate...
I don't know how to describe it really.
