Should the mentally ill get handicap parking?

Should the mentally ill get handicap spots at the store?  I mean crazy is a handicap of mine.   I take a great deal of time, therapy, money and medication to attempt to stay on the sane train.  I just feel like a perk here and there would make me feel special.  It is hard work keeping my bipolar, ADD, insomniac, anxiety-ridden self on the straight and narrow so a shorter walk here and there may lighten the load.

P.S. And yes, I know they are for handicapable people (a term the special education teacher at my school says is correct) that can’t physically handle long walks and I am not trying to belittle or make light of that issue.  I am making fun of myself and my handicap.
