I must say that I hope for understanding of mental illness. People who don’t live with the disease and yes it is a disease just call us crazy or just put them away and many other hurtful things are said. I wish that one day people will educate themselves instead of ignoring us or the disease. I know first hand my parents don’t understand my mental illnesses and give me a hard time and make me feel bad. They say to get over it. I can’t just shut it off. Dad doesn’t even believe in mental illness. I suffer alone every day. I wish more attention would be put out there and people to learn about this disease.
