Don’t Be Harsh With Mentally Ill People

February 26, 2020

Hey, have you ever been depressed, normal person? Have you ever been mixed from rapid cycling? If not, do not presume to be ableist about this mental health business, when you have no idea how much someone else is suffering at your crass hands. Don’t say to them “oye loca,” cousin, after they got a diagnosis, got treated at great risk, and bucked family convention to do so. Getting stable for some of us is difficult. Don’t knock us for taking medication, since we have to in order to make rational sense at all. The ones who should be stigmatized are people who do not take medication, acting out of control. Quit stigmatizing people who go to therapy, because that keeps their fragile mental health state in check. Therapy is not wrong, or weird.
