"But you seems so normal."- I actually got this one while I was in-patient from a fellow patient. I was still diagnosed MDD [now correctly diagnosed BPII]. This is one of the most infuriating things. People see me when I'm "normal" because I front it. I try to hide my mood cycles. They see the baseline and the hypomania [only because not shutting up and being extremely sociable when I frequently state that I strongly dislike 90% of the human population is difficult] because with the depressive, I cloister myself in my apartment. I miss class. I don't socialize. Just because they've seen me when I'm "normal" doesn't mean they've seen all of me.

And "Have you taken your medication?". Good lord. I'm just going to back away from that one. My own mother, having been infuriated by having that said to her thousands of times, has said that to me more than once. I could write an entire article on that phrase alone.
