Feeling sad and alone most of my life was the inspiration to create these unique illustrations. Struggling with depression since I was a teen it took me years to unlearn a lot of ideas that I was socialised to believe, many of which were negatively impacting my mental health. I'm still figuring out how to be alive in this world but sharing my thoughts and realisations with others has proven to be a very rewarding process. The more I learn about how to live and love more fully the more I like to share my thoughts and realisations with my online community Recipes For Self Love. I've been running my Instagram account for about two years now and have built a following of over 445k people from around the world. I want to continue growing my online community while spreading awareness and truths that I found to have helped me a lot.

Mental illness should be talked about more so it would be less of a taboo and people wouldn't be ashamed of it, because getting a mental illness is out of your control. When I was diagnosed, it helped me to know that I wasn't alone in my condition

It took me so long to understand that mental diseases are in fact diseases and not faults in my personality or weaknesses... I am starting to acept now that.

Society still has a stigma regarding mental illness because there is still a lot of fear due to ignorance. NAMI is a wonderful organisation (in the U. S.). For years, I have gone to meetings and classes. I have members of my family who suffer from mental illness, including myself (depression since I was a child). In the 1960's and 70's, no one understood that it wasn't your fault.

Caroline Seguin

Mental illness is an illness. Like a heart problems is a illness of the hearth and diabetes is a problem with the pancreas. The brain is an organ like any other and get sick sometimes. There should be no judging and people who suffer should get treatment without feeling guilty or that they could have done something. You can't. When you have diabetes you sometimes need medication, the doctor doesn't say : well, just try and make your pancreas work better = that would be silly. Well illness of the brain is the same. You cannot change it with your will. We have no power over our sick organs. But medication does help, please ask your doctor for help!

Agreed. Medication does help. There is a stigma against that as well. Some people get nervous when they find out you are on anti-psychotics. "Oh, you must be crazy?" "Umm, no. That's what the meds are for; to keep me from being 'crazy'. Duh!" This sort of ignorance needs to stop. A person being medicated does not mean they are dangerous. Also, medications are not "drugs". I'm not getting high, I'm getting "normal".

Ok but this comes directly after two posts saying to ditch those draining your energy and keep those who add value to your life. Mental Illness is hard enough without the ableist social exclusion.

Frozengeckolover
Community Member

You seem to love that phrase; did you just learn it? Ditching people who drain your energy is not ableism. Ableism is discrimination against people with a disability or illness. Choosing not to continue a relationship with a toxic person is not ableism. Mentally healthy people are not responsible for dragging mentally ill people along through life. Mentally healthy people have absolutely no obligation to remain friends with, or continue to help, mentally ill people just because they are mentally ill. Having a mental illness does not give anyone the right, or excuse, to abuse or mistreat anyone. Most people will try to be understanding, but everyone has a breaking point. My husband has severe PTSD and is an addict. He put me in a dangerous situation and I left him in a prison in the Arctic tundra. Did I leave him because of his illness? No. I left him because he was dangerous. He refused to get help, so I walked away. That is not ableism.

I'm fighting for my life to get the disability I deserve, but some of my illnesses are "invisible." Just because you can't see it doesn't mean it isn't there. Just because you can't understand it doesn't mean it isn't real.

This one gets along with the other one about work. Only people who truly love you will recognize your self-sacrifice, so don't do it for others. It's really not worthy and it will be seen as the opposite of what you wanted to achieve.

This one is true. I'd just add that, sometimes, it's your non-nice side that protects you from harm (both psychological and physical), and from people who misinterpret your niceness. You really gotta learn to see who deserves your nice side and in which situations.

I agree with everything so far, I even agree with this to an extent. I do worry that the ones with this sort of message can be taken out of context. "No Longer Healthy" or "toxic" (seen above) -- that could be something where there is a definite need to remove a person from your life. I can also see people using this as a way to justify not dealing with things too though... and not only that, but not giving the person any chance or opportunity to work on things. I guess I read these and I am immediately like "yeah, definitely" and then I think about friends, and if they thought this way about me, and it kind of terrifies me lol

Oh And Btw Things That You Might Not Think Affect You Actually Do. For Example Most Men Don’t Realize That They Also Suffer From The Patriarchy. Toxic Masculinity Is A Dangerous By-Product Of The Patriarchy And Restricts And Punishes Men For Deviating From A Particular Idea Of Masculinity. This Hurts Them, And In Turn They Hurt Us. It Is In All Of Our Best Interest To Rid This World Of Oppressive Power Structures! .

The problem is that women get raped/abused and men and boys get raped/abused also. The commun person who abuses most women, men and boys/girls are : MEN. It is a men problem and we should address it as such. We should help men and try and find out why there is so much abused perpetrated by men and try to address the situations. It's a real problem and I am sure there are good solutions. We just need to stop blaming the women and telling them what to do to avoid this situation. NO. We should help the men stop these behaviours.

Life Is Often Difficult And Confusing , You’re Not Responsible For How You Feel About The Things That Happen To You And Around You. You Can't Control Your Feelings, All You Can Do Is Decide What Do To With Them When They Arrive. Try Not To Run Away From Your Feelings, Even The Ones That Don't Feel Good. Try To Remember That You Are Not Your Feelings And Your Feelings Are Not Always Reality.

You can't completely control your feelings but you can learn to moderate them so they don't become intense enough to interrupt your mental wellbeing
