“To be honest I never thought it would affect me and I always thought I was ‘fine’.” Quote – from most people when they receive a mental health diagnosis.
If even those who suffer from this horrendous, life threatening illness think they “won’t be affected” and are kind of adding stigma to themselves – then what hope do we have to change the rest of the worlds view on the matter?
Well I hope that this is where we start something new. I hope this is where we create a turning point, a fork in the road. Lets kill stigma so that mental health doesn’t kill humans.
We are not just a “Mistake To You” we are living, breathing, deserving, human beings and we will get better and we will be our best selves again – we’ve got this!
