me: "no, I've been on birth control before, remember? when I was fifteen and they diagnosed me with bipolar disorder? and you (mom) said that I couldn't possibly be bipolar, as I was angry, angry, angry, and never depressed?"
mom: "I wanted you on birth control to manage your heavy periods."
me: "but also my moods."
mom: "..."
dad: "WHaaaaaaaaaaaaat?! she had a diagnosis that early?? ... you mean her psychotic episode could have been prevented?! or treated!?*"
mom: "I plead the second!"
me: "uh. you plead the right to bear arms?"
mom: "yes. if you push me on this, I will shoot you."

*please note that my father's progressive attitudes towards treating mental illnesses is a recent thing, and that he was slamming my mother as weak (and other things) for daring to take medication and enter counseling to manage her anxiety disorder when I was fifteen. he still, to this day, denies that he has any sort of issues and medicates his pain with ... "alternative" measures.
