You might know me as X, a person you can rely on, a person you know what to expect from, a person whom you care and love for.
I am that person but from time to time I am unwell, especially when life is really difficult. When I'm seriously ill I don't always realize and I don't behave as X. That's to be expected, please if you think I'm having trouble let me know. I try to manage that as best I can, I get therapy, medication and I take time out to recover. Unfortunately though there may be periods when I really am very ill and I may even be hospitalized.
I've accepted my illness and I'm sorry if I hurt you or if you are/were upset with me. when I'm unwell I'm not always in control of the things I say or do and I don't mean to hurt you. I appreciate you in my life and I hope you can treat me like X and consider that I do have an illness.
When I am ill I appreciate your help. Please consider that the best treatment someone can give is love, inclusivity and understanding which makes me feel accepted and able to move forward with my life. I realize I may have hurt you, I am sorry, please forgive me.
I believe people from the LGBTIQA+ community know that to be accepted and loved by the community at large is the best treatment people can offer. I'm not sure coming out as "Mentally ill" has been accepted by society yet, but I think it totally should be.
To reduce the negative consequences of mental illness society should be be part of the treatment plan and I believe the acceptance of LGBTIQA+ community is a good example of that.
"The best people in life are free" and my psychologist, Doctor and psychiatrist charge the government instead of me. I read online that people overseas pay for all of there treatment and I must imagine it must be beyond hard. I wrote this for me, my friends and for anyone else that might like to request a little free treatment.#BipolarDepression #Acceptance #SucidePrevention
