"The brain can get sick too."
Re-make of this post.
End mental health stigma.
Don’t you DARE tell me that it isn’t real. That I can just get over it, but I’m not trying hard enough. That I gave it to myself. That I don’t need medicine and I need an exorcism instead.
This is not my fault. It is a disease that runs in my family. My brain is sick, and the medicine I take helps make it better. It is not a fault of character or virtue or ambition or intelligence or heavenly grace. I had a blessed childhood and a loving, nurturing family.
Antidepressants saved my life. Psychological counseling saved my life. I will defend them for the rest of my life because I know firsthand the difference they can make in someone’s quality of life.
