My Mental Illness and Violence
Hi, I’m Kitt.
I’m bipolar, and I’ve been violent.
Mildly so, for the most part.
Flipped over a table once.
Been known to slap in response to being called a f*cking b*tch. Don’t do that anymore, but fair warning: don’t call me a f*cking b*tch. My slap is powerful, as I played tennis in my younger years.
Never killed anyone, but when in my mid-20s, I fantasized doing so when dealing with childhood issues in therapy (alcoholism & emotional abuse).
Pretty disturbing intrusive thoughts and impulses post-partum, too. But I didn’t act on those either.
Mostly I try to help people. I try to behave. I apologize when I screw up. I try to do better.
