Mental Illness

I thought I would make a special blog tonight about mental illness. It is such a big deal in today’s society. I believe it can be so misunderstood and misused. I have many friends and family who have a mental illness. There are millions of people who have a mental illness but what is it? Does it mean you are sick? Is it a death sentence? Mental illness isn’t something you can catch from someone, and it doesn’t mean your life is ruined. A few examples of mental illness, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, panic attacks, and so many more. I see people become afraid of those who have a disorder because they feel something is really wrong with them. I think a lot more research needs to be put into figuring out just how to handle those with a mental disorder. I have seen judgement being passed around to so many but on the other hand, I see it being used as a weapon to get themselves out of trouble and it should not be done in either way. I have a daughter with MID and she has been ridiculed, made fun of and humiliated. That is the reason I homeschool her because she knows her environment is safe at home and doesn’t have to worry who is staring at her or making her feeling uncomfortable. I am her advocate and her biggest supporter. Schools need to take a long look at why kids are being bullied and why kids are dropping out of school. Could it be that kids are intimidated by the curriculum that is being put forth, I believe it’s called common core. Could it be they are feeling anxious about the school setting and don’t know how to handle themselves so maybe they act out by yelling or maybe they scream and cry? I am not just saying it’s our schools, it could be the grocery store or maybe it’s a job interview. We need to get to know one another, instead of making a judgment call about that person, get to know them first. Again, on the other hand, I have seen someone that has had a mental illness use that as a reason they broke the law. I am sorry but if you feel you have a problem you need to seek help. We still have a control of our lives don’t allow a title make you feel inferior or entitled. There is help out there but we still need to get educated on how to treat those with a mental illness.

  1. Very well said !! Mental illness needs to be talked about a lot more because it’s a lot more common than people think. Also very good points about bullying in school, especially those with disabilities.

    1. Mental Illness seems to be in a lot of the Generation Today. We need to post more information about this So other Families can see they aren’t the only ones. I love Children for who they are. U need patients with them.I see the Parents who cope n deal with this are Special Moms. God gave them to only the ones he knew could love n take care of them. They are Beautiful Children , a Gift from God. We all need to learn from them. There is so much we can teach each other. God Loves us all. U are doing a justice to families for getting this out. U are a special person. Strong Mommy. Proud of all you do. U were Blessed .. Love you. Keep them coming N I will figure out how to get on. Lol.
