This week I am again participating in beckys working on us mental health prompt. Becky blogs over at Beckys mental mess, I urge you to go check her out if you dont know her already! She is an amazing blogger, so kind, supportive, and caring!
This week she gave us two prompts, a questions prompt and a photo prompt. I am choosing to participate in the questions prompt.
Below you’ll find the questions, and my answers.
Prompt #1 Questions:
How do you deal with the Stigma surrounding your mental disorder/illness?
I write a blog to raise awareness! My disorder is rare, I have did, did is so misunderstood in the mental health community. So I write my blog to raise awareness of the disorder.
Does the Stigma associated with mental health bother you? If so, in what way?
Yes. People think those of us with did are monsters! I’m not saying everyone does, but the media has made sure that did is something to be afraid of, they either sensationalise it or else make us all out to be freaks and monsters!
I absolutely hate it!
