I have enjoyed helping to run a support group for people with mental disorders … One day, not long ago, a middle-aged man came to our group. He told us that he spent the past year attending different grief groups, but none of them were right. ‘Why not?’ someone asked. The man said: ‘Because everyone there was grieving over the loss of another person. I was grieving for myself. For who I used to be before I got sick and who I am now.’
Yes, this was in front of my school. In front of most of my grade and others.
We had a few events this week, and one of them was mine. I told my story with mental illness, struggling with bipolar disorder, ADHD and OCD also with self harm and suicidal idealization. It got really personal but I think it really woke some of them up that this girl who seems happy, has really been through hell and back.
my mom was telling me the other day that she wouldn’t just go around telling everybody she had a mental illness and i don’t know that kind of made me mad and i just said,”i tell people because there is no reason for me to be ashamed or to hide it, by speaking out, i am helping get rid of the stigma”.
of course she still didn’t understand but she’s just like that i guess.
