B put it in the cupboard to make more room for food? C stick it in the cat food bag, where no one will find it? Would it be different if your medication was for your diabetes?
What about if it were for an STD? And shame is a big, powerful feeling. Recently, celebrities have been open about their own mental illnesses, and my hope is that this will have a positive impact on the rest of society.
Princes Diana brought the problem of self-injury into light. Mental illnesses can be successfully treated much of the time, with medication, psychotherapy, or both. People with severe mental illnesses have gone on to live normal lives.
Statistics say that 26 percent of adults may have a diagnosable mental disorder. The percentage of people who actually obtain treatment is far less, however, due in part to the stigma that continues to flourish.
In real life, the stigma of mental illness can take the form of thoughts such as: At some point, though, you have to trust that the people who love you will continue to love you.
Most likely the people closest to you have seen symptoms of your illness and are glad that you are obtaining the treatment you need.
Friends and family can also be more prepared to support your treatment journey when they know what is going on.
We all have private and public lives, and those need to be respected and honored. You are not compelled to discuss your eating disorder to your boss, or your anxiety to your best friend.
And keep in mind that discrimination on the basis of mental illness is illegal. When you share your diagnosis of any illness, you open yourself up to help and compassion. You might also be surprised when your disclosure encourages others to disclose their mental illnesses as well.
Mental illness is nothing to be ashamed about, and my hope is that everyone can find their own way to experience this.
