Challenging Stigmas & an Imperfect System
Post has been edited. Updated version coming soon.
If you are depressed or dealing with any other mental illness, please get help. Ask family, ask a friend, ask a co-worker, ask a neighbor. Call a hotline. It’s a good thing to ask for help. You are not a burden. There are resources if you don’t have insurance or lack the money for treatment.
Do not give up.
If a therapist or a medication doesn’t work, try a new one. Please don't give up on yourself. You are not broken or doing something wrong if Plan A doesn’t help you. Do not forget that. I am still here because of Plans B through H.
