When did you realize you were a Median?
I realized I was a median when Muse came in, and when S got busted up.
How long have you been a Median?
For as long as I can remember.
Looking back, I’ve always been a Median. A good indecatior is how my preferences changed dramatically when I had my “mood swings”. Two good examples in my life are peanut butter and hot dogs.
So how it that different from being bipolar or having mood swings?
It’s a question of degree, intensity, and origin. Illia might be considered bipolar, and Melencholia has depression (clinically diagnosed), but as a whole we are neither.
To be bipolar, we would have to have extreme reactivity/mood swings. Except for Illia, we do not. On the outside, it may seem like we do, but this is often switching, or an internal conflict.
And for mood swings, yes we have them. Each of us does. Please remember that the body is still in puberty, and most of us are in puberty too! Lots of hormones= lots of reactivity. However, the people I share headspace with are NOT “just mood swings”. They have their own preferences, genders and sexualities.
Any and all questions are welcome! Comments and critiques are appreciated.
