Why *shouldn't* you talk about your fits? It's your journal, damnit.

It's not a question of whose journal this is. I think it comes down to my being the product of a time and culture that steadfastly did not discuss "such things" in public. Chronic illness and insanity, for example, were not the sort of thing you talked about openlu beyond the family. And even within the family, there was an unspoken protocol. At the time, of course, nothing comparable to LiveJournal existed. The closest you could have come, I suppose, would have been to stand up in school or church and talk about it, or write letters to the newspaper, or something of the sort. My childhood did not prepare me for a world of blogging. It's an odd sort of contradiction: I am a very private person, and yet I keep this very public journal.
