    So....I don't usually post to much but I've been on here awhile. Today Mike talked about people with mental illness as being weirdo's and other things that were pretty harsh and it broke my heart. I have paranoid schizophrenia and I've never been offensive or mean or creepy to him or anyone in Linkin Park ever. I don't know if I'll be back but I'm going to be gone for awhile. I just wanted to say bye to everyone. Best of luck to all of you!

    She might’ve misunderstood Mike’s words but how about not being an insensitive ass to someone with a diagnosed mental illness also. There’s probably more to her problems than someone taking offense to your musical idol.

    Yeah, i agree here with MGG.

    But it would be also interesting to knew where the misunderstanding comes from? Mike would never discredit mentaly-ill people. That makes no damn sense.

    I don't know it seems like schizophrenics really freak him out. I guess I could be looking at it the wrong way....to be honest. I'm in kind of a dark place right now.

    I suffer from mental illness myself, thanks. It doesn't give me an automatic pass for throwing accusations at people.

    If I made a list of musical idols, Mike Shinoda wouldn't crack the top 10. Maybe even 20.

    Also, are we going to get a source for what he supposedly said, or...?

    So you don't even know what was said, yet you're gonna say she hilariously misinterpreted Mike's words?

    ok so I know it's at the end of this video when he's answering questions. I had a medication change because the other meds I was taking made me gain weight like crazy and I'm a little out of it so I can't tell you exactly where it is. I talked to my therapist today and she's going to let my doctor know so that will be fixed soon.
    anyways if someone could find it and let me know if I'm totally wrong that'd be awesome.

    It starts at 1:50:52
    Mike is talking about weirdos who are mentally ill, he's not saying all mentally ill people are weirdos.
    Specifically TOXIC weirdos.

    Thanks, that really helped a lot. I realize that I'm extra sensitive to things right now. I'm sorry and thank you guys for being supportive. I feel like my brain is beating me up right now.
    I just have to try not to be really embarrassed now.

    Eh, it's the internet, don't worry. It's not like you personally attacked any of us or anything. Misunderstandings happen.

    These are stressful times, try to take it easy :)

    That was a weird tangent for him to go on, but, also, Shinoda talking about Stephen King - my worlds collide :innocent:

    No reason to be embarrassed. You had a perfectly valid reason to be concerned. Sorry to hear things are hard for you.

    My therapist and doctor are pretty quick they already got back to me this morning and told me what to do. I start that tonight. I'm starting to feel a little better, writing and creating things seems to help.
