the stigma of depression
« on: July 01, 2017, 06:54:08 PM »
There is a certain stigma in having to deal with chronic depression (or any form of "mental/emotional illness". Like it's disgraceful.

What.

I'm not sure about that even making sense.

Well maybe it does make sense. Those with learning disabilities &/or challenges that are obvious (physical), are also looked upon as being inferior. How sad.

Before we are born, we do not get to stand in front of an expansive glass case & choose everything about ourselves...what we look like, our heritage, strengths, weaknesses, capabilities, vulnerabilities, predispositions, etc... No one does.

Why do we judge so quickly and easily.
