I’m working on some thoughts about Skam, the latest episode and the clip/texts they released.
I’m having a lot of feelings, and as a person with bipolar disorder I am also feeling very… Overwhelmed? With the way that it is being depicted in the show, and with how Isak is handling the whole thing.
I am over a decade older than the characters in this show, and i have never seen myself reflected in media in such a thoughtful and honest way, and for Even to be accepted and defended by Isak (and by Isak’s friends) is such an incredible gift to every mentally ill person who has ever hidden themselves for fear of losing someone, or has been rejected by someone or pushed someone away because of their illness.
So, while I’m putting myself together and writing a slightly more in depth thing, I just want to take a moment to be grateful for this show and it’s incredible cast and writers.
