things that arent fucking abusive but are traits of mental illness:
- mood swings
- violent urges (verbally. if they act on it then thats a different story.)
- breakdowns over little things you do
- constant need of attention
seriously, if you’re uncomfortable with a mentally ill person doing these things, let them know. watch out for your safety too. just dont throw a hissy fit about abuse if they dont respond very lightly. abuse is somebody literally hurting you physically and forcing you to do things. just because a mentally ill person kind of hurts your feelings when they break down doesnt mean they’re abusing you. holy shit.
