Why I Blog On Mental Illness/Mental Health Disorders? Read To Find Out Exactly Why

Mental illnesses often, well always, goes without any understanding, most people actually believe it’s all a fake, like it’s all in everyone’s mind. Especially if the illnesses aren’t visible. Which is so unfair to those who’s actually suffering.

It’s sad that people actually think all mental illnesses can/should be seen. And believing that it can’t or won’t happen to them. Those beliefs… makes me sick! It can happen to anybody, no matter your lifestyle, your skin color, or your age, mental illnesses don’t discriminate towards no one.

Many people feel that mental illness is rare, something that only happens to people with life differences, situations, very different from their own. Believing it will never affect them. There’s studies of the epidemiology of mental illness indicate that this belief is very far from accurate.

I blog on mental illnesses because they are very real. It can happen to anyone, it doesn’t have to just be because of a person’s life differences, or situations. But it can most definitely happen. No matter how old you are or what color you are. It doesn’t matter if you’re a girl or boy, man or woman.

Now on the other hand…. sometimes mental health problems can happen from certain life situations. But not all the time. I blog because I know how it feels to feel extreme sadness, dark emotions, and always feeling guilty. Those heartless feelings. Feelings that have you feeling guilty for just thinking them.

I’m here to tell those who don’t believe in mental illnesses… do some research, it’s real. Mental illnesses are so real. It’s just the same/just as important as a physical illness. Stop with the negative stigma about mental illnesses if you’ve never ever experienced one or more of mental illnesses. How can you judge something that you’ve never had to lug around day and night? Something that can really be severe to fight. It affects how a person think, feel, or mood. It also affects how you behave, and function. What’s so hard about understanding, and excepting that?

Those beliefs and those negative comments on mental illnesses is very discriminating and very selfish. Especially to those who don’t understand it or who have never experienced any of the conditions. The negative comments, the negative stigma towards mental illnesses makes me so furious!!

I blog on mental illnesses because The darkness of depression, bipolar, and panic attacks are so real, the pain and heartache, the emotions as well as feelings, can be severe. Symptoms of mental illnesses can be life threatening, so tell me… how it’s not real?! To those who say “it’s all in our minds.” We wish it was all in our minds!

Who wants to feel depressed, sad, guilty, or catch panic attacks or anxiety attacks for the hell of it? That’s just crazy! Now that’s insane to even think that! Just plain ridiculous.

That’s why I’m here…. to spread awareness, and to let others know that it is okay if you have a mental health disorder. You have no reason to be ashamed about it, and you have no reason to hide it.

If not taken care of, like getting treatment, mental illnesses can take over your life. Depression (major depression), bipolar disorder, ptsd, and ocd can be treated. Just like all other mental illnesses. Just like physical Illnesses such as cancer, diabetes, and heart disease.

Mental illnesses are the exact same way, when a person is diagnosed with cancer, they have to get treatment and take their medications, it’s the same thing with your mental health. It’s okay if you have to take medications all your life, your mental health matters. Don’t let depression or any other mental illness take over your life. The plan is to fight back and regain your life.

Getting treatment, asking for help, and by taking your medicine how it’s prescribed to you, and also keeping up with your appointments… and last but not least…, going to therapy. That is the first best step to fighting back and wanting to regain, and reclaim your life back, and also on the road to recovery.
