People Totally Blew Dooce’s Mental Health Issues
Out Of Proportion

Dooce, no one cares but it’s a slow news day so far, has revealed via podcast that she maybe made too big a deal out of her mental health. She says based on her years of posts where she brings up her variable moods, people apparently got the idea that she was actually mentally fragile – but that wasn’t really the case.

I did hammer the nail into my own coffin…I had crafted a narrative that I was the crazy neurotic wife…when he revealed to people that I was the one who asked for the separation all these people were like I can’t imagine what it was like to live with someone so mentally ill..

She went on to say most of her tales of instability were just “curated” stories she shared on her blog, but the “narrative” “worked against” her during the divorce because “a lot of people interpreted” her “as a deranged woman”.
