    Same, there is a perceived stigma that if you have a good day you're not "mentally ill enough" to receive help even though this isn't true. Your mind is lying to you. When this happens to me I remind myself that just because I had one (1) good day doesn't mean I can't seek help

    I think this happens a lot especially for people born with a uterus because we learn early on to tolerate distress and that we shouldn't talk about it because it's "something all women deal with" or because we are shamed for talking about it. I think sometimes my bipolar disorder gets ignored because I think it's just hormones, or vice versa. It's hard to know what's wrong! I just know lately I have very good and very bad days back to back and I'm afraid to ask for help because I don't want my teachers to think of me as the boy who cries wolf every time I don't finish an assignment. But I'm seriously struggling with my health, mental and physical.

      Oh, the distress tolerating I meant was the period cycle. Many women have pain, discomfort, and mood swings along with their cycle and are told it's no big deal. I've cried at work many times because of my cycle and lost the respect of even female workers because their cycles don't make them cry for a whole ass hour.

        There's other discomforts we are made to bear too, like people making us uncomfortable but being forced to smile at them because females must be sweet and polite.

    Me too. Like I'm making excuses for my behavior. I just ask myself WHY would I act this way if I could possibly help it. Obviously I wouldn't. I hate it? but I can't stop myself sometimes. I feel judged and I know I judge myself too harshly . People will try to support a person who is physically ill but when you're mentally ill they seem to run away instead.
