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.

I am a Mental Health Advocate for mental illness Stigma. In 2007, I created the "Living in Stigma" blog, with the purpose and anticipation of educating people about mental illness. Depression is part of this illness, which intertwines with those struggling with PTSD, chronic pain, and other invisible illnesses. I am a chronic migraine sufferer myself, and a sexual and emotional abuse survivor. My passions are writing, poetry, and art. All abuse Survivors are also Warriors.

  1. 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 😉

    1. 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. 🙂
