Hi guys, So I am collaborating books, mental health and chronic pain/illnesses together to hopefully raise awareness, bringing authors and bloggers together.
Due to my psychical and mental disabilities, I have become restricted in what I am able to do. I refound my love for reading again, which in turn I found my love of writing. My motivation is simple really, to raise awareness, to inspire others and make them feel less alone in this world and allow them to escape the reality of life in a book. Having mental health illnesses as a teenager, books allowed me to escape into the world of others and allowed me to escape from the depression, pain and feeling so alone in the world much like they still do now.
There is still a HUGE amount of stigma attached and surrounding mental health and chronic illnesses. It’s quite shocking to say the least in 2017 nearly 2018.
What I mean by stigma?
Stigma is a negative reaction to something which devalues and makes people feel like they are less than someone/something. In simple terms people discriminate against those of us with mental health and invisible chronic illnesses. Which makes us feel devalued, discriminated, different and fearful.
Many people with invisible mental and physical illnesses do not seek help they desperately need in fear of being discriminated against, judged and not being believed by there peers and health professionals.
Which makes there condition worse and can cause them to be ashamed, worthless, alone and have really bad suicidal ideation and many have followed through.
Which is so super sad and can be helped and shouldn’t be happening by speaking out, getting and being inspired by those who have and seemed help.
We should NOT feel ashamed and fearful. We are fighting a battle that those who are still ignorant and discriminating NO nothing about.
We are beautiful, brave and strong!!
