My father reacted very badly after witnessing my hypomanic self (despite me being self aware enough to isolate myself in my room), he said I was going insane and scowled me. I tried to explain once I was stable again that his words hurt me and that I couldn't fully control myself then but he said i was lying and refused to apologize. Now he's acting like nothing happened. It especially hurts because he always said he supported me. Guess he forgot to add "as long as you don't show symptoms".
Your dad is blatantly gaslighting you and that’s not okay. That’s super toxic of him.
Honestly a lot of people are unfortunately ableist and don’t understand that always supporting someone who’s disabled/mentally ill means understanding and working with the “ugly” symptoms as well, and accepting that they fuckin happen because it’s something we cannot control, but have to learn how to manage in healthy ways with proper patience and support and care, and especially from our loved ones.
I’m sorry your dad’s being such an ass. That’s not fair for him to gaslight you, treat you like you’re going insane, or invalidate what you experience. I’ll be sending you a lot of love and hugs.
