It saddens me that creating a fundraiser for myself, potentially helping me by getting a disability lawyer, it is creating so much hate. Do you understand that I am sick? What makes this less serious than raising money for someone’s cancer treatment etc?
I can’t afford what this illness is continuously taking from me anymore! I have this for the rest of my life! I will see doctors for the rest of my life and be on medications for the rest of my life! My life expectancy is shorter because not only do have suicidal ideation at times, but the side effects of my medications, and there are a lot of them cause more health problems! Moreover, pills help but they constantly need to be adjusted and they are not a cure. There is no cure.
WHY SHOULD I HAVE TO SPELL IT OUT THAT MENTAL HEALTH IS A SERIOUS SUBJECT THAT IS BEING OVERLOOKED AND CAST ASIDE BY SOCIETY BECAUSE YOU SIMPLY CANNOT SEE THAT WE SUFFER WITH YOUR OWN EYES. WE HAVE CHEMICAL IMBALANCES AND COGNITIVE PROBLEMS THAT KEEP US FROM LIVING A NORMAL LIFE.
I am crying as I write this. I work incredibly hard to spread awareness and just because I asked for help for myself, I am now a bad person. I know that I am a good person, but the hate seriously hurts me and I can’t help that. I have my second $60 psychiatrist appointment within the past 3 days now. I cannot control my brain. I need more help. I only asked for help with getting a lawyer.
Thank you for those who understand and support the seriousness of mental health awareness, you are the few individuals who see there is no difference between a physical and mental disability.
