How come society and friends think that mental illness is not existent?

I have autism and bipolar myself and my friends don't believe me that my meltdowns and etc is caused by my illness which makes me have impulses. I can't control myself sometimes and I end up doing reckless things to satisfy my depression. My friends think that I'm just immature and that my illness is non existent. How come my friends think that my illness is non existent ??

    Blah, blah, blah.

    Whine, whine, whine.

    Because it isn't a mental illness to act impulsively.  It is a simple lack of control.   You refuse to even try to cultivate self control and sadly your parents have let you get away with it for far too long.

    If you are unable to control yourself at age 30 it isn't mental illness it is just you refusing to grow up.

    Being autistic is not a free pass and being an immature jerk is not a disability, jacob.
