My answer is no

To the person who told me I should stop watching Law and Order, Criminal Minds or any sort of “crime related” TV show because it makes me depressed.

To the person who told me I shouldn’t be so emotional all the time.

To the person who told me that having a mental illness is a choice.

To the person who asked if anxiety was contagious.

To the person who told me to suck it up and stop thinking about it.

To the person who told me I was fine.

To the person who tried to tell me that I’m too young to have anxiety and / or depression.

To the person who looked at me like I had 4 heads when I told them I take medication every day.

To the person who called me all kind of names once I said I suffer from anxiety and depression. My answer is no.


 

No I won’t stop watching crime TV shows because the chemical imbalance in my brain is not caused by them.

No I won’t stop being emotional, it’s who I am.

No. No one ever chooses to have a mental illness. Ever.

No anxiety is not contagious.

No I’m not going to suck it up and stop thinking about it. It’s not that easy.

No I’m not fine. What I’m feeling is real please don’t dismiss that.

No I’m not too young to have anxiety and depression.

No I don’t have 4 heads. Please stop looking at me like that because I take medication every day to help correct the chemical imbalances in my brain.

No you can’t call me those names because I am not those names just because I have a mental illness.
