    TRUE or FALSE: My health makes me feel like I’m not worthy of help.

    There’s a lot of unspoken emotional baggage that comes with having mental and physical health issues. It can be easy, especially when you factor in external and internalized ableism, to feel self-conscious or guilty about needing help. There’s also the dreaded sensation of feeling like a “B-word,” a burden. (We can promise you you’re not actually one!)

    When it comes to asking for help, how does your health make you feel? Do you feel comfortable and confident when you ask for help? Or does your health make you feel undeserving of someone’s help?

    Sometimes living with a mental illness can be as tough as trying to walk through 2 feet of snow wearing flip flops. You may slip and fall but you still keep trying to succeed. #MentalIllness #mentaldisorder #MentalHealth #BPD
