It isn’t easy to disclose to others that you live with an illness such as anxiety, depression, bipolar etc. People can often be judgmental, cruel, will assume things, and even try to talk me out of sharing or blogging about it. I understand that it’s “personal” information, but I feel and know that I have helped others tremendously just by blogging and sharing my journey with those who are also affected. I don’t run with society. I don’t see this illness as a flaw and I am not ashamed that I live with it. There is no shame in living with a mental illness at all. What we should be ashamed of is how society views and treats people with these illnesses. I am utterly ashamed of the society we live in and how mental health is viewed, portrayed, and how it is always put on the back burner. It’s time to step up.
