Mental illness doesn’t mean stupid!

Hey everyone,

Hope everyone is feeling ok and if you’re not, well that is ok too as you’re only human. EURGH! BLAH! FUCK! DAMN! Those are the words I have mostly used this week, so as you can tell what a fun week it has been (insert sarcasm). I know I can blabber on a bit when it comes to how I have been so I thought I would keep it short and sweet for once, so here it goes:
• Anxiety has been a bitch.
• Mother natural has decided to visit early.
• People are annoying me.
• I have made big steps towards my food issues.
• Just because I have had a few bad moments doesn’t mean it has been a bad week.

So there we go it has been one of those weeks where not great but not terrible but to be honest I think weeks like that are so important to have as they can make you see the good in the bad, it helps with recognizing the balance.
All I know is that from what I have learned this week is I try! I try to get better, I try and not let my mental illness and my suitcases full of issues take over my life and yeah I don’t always win but I try and that to me is a victory within itself.
I said I weren’t going to blabber, didn’t I? Oops…. well I tried!

Let’s have the tip of the day –

Mental illness doesn’t mean stupid!

If one more person this week tells me I can’t do something because of my mental illness I am seriously going to blow. Yes, I know I have a mental illness but that doesn’t mean I am fucking stupid. I know I have let my mental illness stopped me from doing things from time to time, but that doesn’t mean I can’t do it, it just means I haven’t done it yet.
The stigma with mental illness can swing from one drastic way to another, from someone thinking you don’t have the ability to do something because of a mental illness or the other way where they wrap you in cotton wool and stop you from doing something. I get it completely, but having a mental illness doesn’t make us aliens we are still human, so what I cried because I was having anxiety over missing my bus, only human!
We all have issues it is just that some people’s issues are bit more present than other people. We all have the ability to achieve what we want to achieve mental illness or not.

Take care all,

  1. O.M.G. This is so annoying. You are completely right. There is so much stigma around various mental illnesses. Like, I swear, if one more person asks if I’m violent or dangerous when I’m off meds, just because I’m schizophrenic, I am actually going to become violent 😑
    Im gonna say “yeah, I can be pretty dange- wait! Did I take my meds today…?🤔”
    And let me see their reaction.
