When it is mental health that’s being laughed at.
Bipolar Disorder is not funny. It’s especially not funny when someone who is or is not diagnosed tries to self-medicate via illicit substances.
I think my favorite Estevez brother said it best in the cult classic (shh! I love it, therefore it is a cult classic) Mighty Ducks:
You may make it. You may not. But that doesn’t matter, Charlie. What matters is that we’re here. Look around. Who ever thought we’d make it this far… Take your best shot. I believe in you, Charlie. Win or lose.
Sometimes brothers know best.
