So You Wanna Be Bipolar? Here’s a handy dandy Checklist!



This is for fun guys

We are pretending that we need to hire people to be Bipolar!

See just a game. NO ONE wants to be Bipolar

To be clear.  No Bipolar would answer true to any of these statements either. This is humor. Designed to convey the suckiness that is Bipolar.  No one is supposed to take away that we actually do this stuff on purpose.  But if a normie liked all this shit than they should trade places with one of us.



Thank you for your interest in becoming Bipolar. Before we proceed you need to complete this short questionnaire.

These are true or false statements.  Please answer “true”, “false”, or “Are you fucking kidding me?” to each item.

You need to be able to answer “true” to at least 300 of them in order to qualify for the next phase of the program.

    Oh my god yes. Also going to reblog. I love the one about fresh produce going to waste! I loved them all, this is a really great link to share with people who know nothing about bipolar.
    Currently trialling alternative medication, also going really well like I expected, not. Lolz. Dunno what I hoped for really, I guess you just think maybe this organic red wine vinegar with bark soaked in it and daisies kissed by fairies WILL help somehow. We clutch dem straws tightly.


  2. ambivalencegirl

    Oh my gosh, I love this! I am not bipolar (I fear that I am) but I could relate to most of this. I wouldn’t mind being Angelina Jolie’s character from Girl Interupted or how about Marya Hornbacher because I totally relate to her. And really, you should seriously try yoga!!!
