That Remarkable Moment When a Southern Mother Fights the Stigma

Mental Health Guest Post

Mental health is something that I am extremely passionate about. Over the past 8-10 years I’ve suffered from depression, anxiety, panic attacks, and an eating disorder. I’ve been seen by multiple doctors on the subject of my mental health.Southern women with mental illness

What I’ve learned is, medicine isn’t the enemy, whatever you suffer from is. I also learned its ok to take time for yourself every now and then. You can’t expect to get better if you don’t take time to do something you love and enjoy doing.

Mental health issues aren’t glamorous like they show on TV. Mental Health issues are when you’re sitting in a make shift psych ward that doubles as a drunk tank waiting to be sent to a mental hospital. Mental health issues is crying until you run out of tears.

Mental health issues NEED to be talked about. We personally need to end the stigma that is associated with mental health.
