STIGMA & HYPOCRISY…just wanted to help kids

I’m quite down tonight. Have been since yesterday when CASA wouldn’t have me as a volunteer…”because my life mirrors the kiddos who need help, and I might be triggered.” My Bipolar Disorder wasn’t looked upon with favor, either. Again… “You might be triggered.”

Let me say, it’s a consistent thing I’ve dealt with for…for forever basically, just like others with Bipolar Disorder.

I know how to handle myself, and when to ask for help from my support team.

My background and current “disorder” would actually enable me to connect well with children.

Instead, I miss out. Someone I could’ve helped misses out. Stigma and hypocrisy still breed and thrive, even in the last places you’d expect to find them.
