Stigma Quote

Mental illness stigma

I had to write this quote as it reminded me of a relative who visited me in the hospital.  Perhaps she assumed I lost my marbles along with the depression?  Perfect example of stigma.

    Haha. Great quote. It’s hard for people to understand we can have PTSD or anxiety or what-have-you and still be completely functional, intelligent funny people. I like making jokes in the middle of my panic attacks, usually to reassure someone else that I’m really fine but my reptilian brain isn’t getting the message 😉

      Hey, good one. This business of mental illness tied to brain function is actually kind of comical. Show how moronic people really are! But, at times I do have brain fog, but then doesn’t everyone at some point? Stigma example once again. Thanks for commenting. 🙂
