One of the worst things about having mental health problems is the stigma against it!
The fact that when you mention to people you have any sort of mental illness you instantly see either fear come across their face or just a look of disbelief and that hurts… a lot.
The most common thing that is said to people with mental illness is “well you don’t look ill” and this angers me because I would never say to anyone who has just found the courage to open up about something so personal, that literally ruins their life on a daily basis to be told to prove how ill they actually are.
The reason it is called mental illness because it is in the mind but what people don’t seem to understand is that just because you can’t see it dosen’t mean that it dosen’t exisit! It just means that your not willing to accept that it actually does exist and maybe it’s them that need to change their way of thinking and not the people who are actually suffering with these awful illness’s.
It winds me up so badly that in 2019 there is still a massive stigma attached to mental illness for no other reason than people’s ignorance! And that is a fact! There is no excuse for people to still be stigmatizing people with mental illness as there is so much evidence out there now about mental health problems that there is just no reason for people to question it, but yet for some reason they still do!
I honestly just wish that these people who don’t believe in mental illness could spend a morning in my mind and I can tell you know most if not all of those people would never ever question if mental illness exists because my mind is a scary place a lot of the time so these non believers would soon be eating their words and probably even apologising for questioning the hell we go through in our minds every single day!
