The past 4 yrs have been an up and down kiddie coaster up until the 23rd of Sept 2019, then it was a complete free fall after that, save the specifics for later on but has anyone ever had the expierence of a friend or family members talking amongst themselves and others that your mental health is only a crutch...

      I have had places of employment use my mental illness against me to get rid of me. Now that not only sucks but screws with my livelyhood

      💕🙏I'm lucky. I've always been supported with my diagnoses. Maybe my mom didn't believe all of them but she tried to listen and understand. She know that a lot of my are hereditary and the rest are from being abused. She also freaked out when she saw my wrists after not seeing me for 4 years. I had slashed my wrists trying to commit suicide when she wouldn't come get me when I was being abused. She felt bad for being the reason and I told her it wasn't her fault it was the abuse I wanted away from. She did her best to understand everything I went through but it was hard for her because she'd never been through anything like it. I loved my mother and miss her very much she kept me help together. Now I've got God and my husband and they keep me strong.

      It has happened to me, over and, over and over. My parents literally disowned me because I made the decision to check myself to the hospital. I was off my meds, had been for awhile. I knew I needed to get back on them. I tried getting in to the Dr but it was literally a 6mo waiting list. I knew I couldn't wait that long. You would have thought they would've understood. But that's what you get for having narcissistic drunks for parents. It made them look bad and like they didn't do a good job as a parent. I was diagnosed with bipolar tendencies manic depression when I was 16. They didn't want to listen to the doctor then. I'm 38 now and nothing's changed still can't get them to listen it's all in my head it's just an excuse bleep blah blah blah blah.

      My late sister used to tell me I didn't need medications for my bipolar disorder, I told her how do you know, are you a doctor, do you have an M.D. after your name? I mean people can be so insensitive towards one another

      I've never had someone tell me that I'm using my mental health as a crutch, but I've seen it happen so many times that I live in fear of someone using my mental health against me. I have always held myself very accountable and been open to those I trust about my problems and my reasoning, but I still get scared that someone will use my bipolar or PTSD diagnoses as leverage against me for some reason.

      My entire family has mental illness. That being said my family actually tried using it against me saying stuff like oh you only act like this and use it for an excuse as of what and what not I do too do ect….. there is such a stigma about mental health and it really bothers me. I feel as though now is the most critical time being this pandemic had made so many individuals and their mental health is just sad I vulnerable that we should reach out hold one another up and just be there
