This is the greatest thing I have ever seen. People do not understand that mental illnesses, such as depression, are actual chemical imbalances in your body. They are not brought on by choice. My dad was diagnosed with depression. He was so ashamed of it that he hid it from me and my brothers. A month later, he killed himself. The stigma that comes with mental illness made my Dad embarrassed to talk to his own kids about this problem because he felt like less of a man.
Erase the stigma. The more we talk about mental illness, the less likely it will end in suicide.
I can’t even express how much i love this, and I wish everyone at my school could see this. because I am so tired of being judged for something i can’t control.
this is simply amazing.
ok so i usually just ignore the ignorant bs i see on the blogs of people who follow me (i assume all of you will figure your shit out eventually or go away), but this is kind of personal.
i’m mentally ill. yeah, we get this shit. but you know who also gets blamed for being ill? PHYSICALLY ILL PEOPLE. specifically, PEOPLE WITH CANCER.
my dad died of cancer last june. he used a wheelchair for the last few years, so he was constantly getting ableist bullshit — people sent him health articles telling him to eat different things, think positively, take up meditation, “just try” walking when he could, interrogating him as to why he needed a cane/wheelchair some days and not others, telling him that [insert thing] is a CANCER CURE!!, etc, etc, etc.
it was draining and horrible and we ended up talking over this shit a lot because the bs people tell me about “just willing myself not to freak out”? is the exact same bs people told him about “just willing himself not to be ill.” he actually got it worse.
stop erasing the ableism that physically disabled & ill people face in some fucked up attempt to prop up people like me. i do not appreciate it.
the implication that eyk are celebrities in any way offends me on a personal level
kpl is a no eyk zone forever.
