The one thing that annoys me more than anything is people that don't understand what a mental illness/chemical imbalance is. I get so tired of people asking me "why I am depressed" and not understanding that many times I don't have a reason. It has all to do with what side of the mood swing I'm on. I tend to have more issues with mania/hypomania than I do depression. My manic/hypomanic episodes last longer than my depression episodes but I can get depressed completely out of nowhere. I usually know when to anticipate a depression episode because they almost always come after a manic/hypomanic episode. But, I think people are very uneducated about mental illness and it really annoys me.
Plus, my dd is having really bad issues with her moods and behavior and I get really aggravated that people are only aware of her behavior issues and don't understand how much of her behavior is related to her chemical imbalance. It's been making me really mad lately. She is still a little girl and she needs love and understanding.

The same thing annoys me, people not understanding it's a chemical imbalance. It's real and a medical diagnosis by a Pdoc, not self-diagnosis.
It annoys me when people don't seek to learn more about mental illness if they one have themselves or has family who has one. They think they know something based on broad generalizations. But, I realize others aren't always like me, in that I love to research and learn as much as I can. I read multiple books on my disorder and read the pharmacy sheet for every medication I take, even antibiotics.
