As a child you are always told that your body was for you and to speak up if any adult ever hurts you through physical,verbal, or your no no zones.
When your a child mommy and daddy are the boo boo fixers and will be by your side when you have a tummy ache or just don’t feel good.
Sometimes you even got to play hooky from school.
Oh, how times do change as we became adults.
Some of us now face an even different response to our health diagnosis.
My experience has baffled me to say the least!
We have been shamed of our health issues, reaching points in our life where we no longer had supporters on our team making us the SOUL MEMBER of this dream team fighting a battle that others refused to listen, try to understand, hell couldn’t even show empathy.
To the it was just words and we were the cause of feeling this way. I even battle multiple medical issues, but I have always dealt with the daily understanding of MENTAL HEALTH ILLNESSES, which continues to be stigmatized worldwide!
When will the masses start admitting that these debilitating (for many)problems can be life altering and begin seeing how some of these diagnosis’ are minor to major. Some lives are beyond recognition because of the lifestyle changes they must implement.
Mental illness disagreements has been ongoing between the non believers and believers for years. Just because it can’t be seen by you (a non-doctor) doesn’t make it disappear.
The entire world needs to STOP being insensitive to the cause and raise for awareness because multiple people of the population, battle some form of a mental health disorder.
Along with my other forms of medical diagnosis’, I have no problem admitting I suffer from anxiety, ADD, sleep disorder,depression,and lastly bi-polar disorder.
GUESS WHAT? I will not be ashamed not let a single person tell me, “It’s all in your head.”
Lastly, just because it can’t be seen doesn’t change a thing. Certain types of cancer can’t be seen on the outside of someone’s body but it still exists.
I hope this sound off (which wasn’t meaning to) has helped another or brought awareness to someone.
I’m really pumped to hear the community’s thought on this post. Never be concerned about being the real you on here. I will say this flowed straight from heart and soul!
