I would like to express some of my opinions about the sudden trend of mental illness.
Something I have been ashamed of is suddenly cool? I’m sorry but these celebs coming forward as experiencing depression can KISS MY FUCKING ASS. I don’t know how this became a trend, and I am grateful it’s getting the attention it deserves, but I do NOT appreciate any of these people who suddenly “have anxiety” or “depression”.
They are mitigating the fucking disease. Don’t tell me you were depressed because you got a silver medal. FUCK YOU. Have you cut yourself? Swallowed a bottle of pills? Thought about suicide daily? No.
The ONLY good thing coming from this is I finally feel better about sharing my problems with even my best friends. Because it was not ok until now. But it doesn’t change how I feel inside. I appreciate that people care and are trying to be sympathetic, but as far as I can tell at the moment, something that is life or death for me since I was born is suddenly cool. Cool until when? Those of us who are truly suffering kill ourselves?
It’s coming either way.
