Before you pass judgment on one who is self destructing, it’s important to remember they usually aren’t trying to destroy themselves. They’re trying to destroy something inside that doesn’t belong. – JmStorm

🌻 Sophie’s World 🌎
STOP 🛑 THE STIGMA OF MENTAL ILLNESS.
So … in 2014 after experiencing several loses, I fell into a deep, severe depression episode. I also got suicidal thoughts. I went to a doctor and told him about it, and this is what he told me, “But you don’t look suicidal to me ?! Be positive, be grateful and think happy thoughts. It’s all in your head.”. 😑 🙄
You know what, in a way, there’s truth in it. Depression, anxiety , suicidal thoughts 💭 are all symptoms of a sick brain 🤕 🧠.
And yes, it is true that our brain 🧠 is located inside our head 😊.
I found this PET scan picture, and I want to share it with you guys.
PLEASE DON’T GET DISCOURAGED OR ASHAMED IF YOU HAVE A MENTAL ILLNESS.
MENTAL ILLNESS/BRAIN DISORDERS ARE THE SICKNESS OF THE BRAIN 🧠. AND THE BRAIN IS AN ORGAN IN HUMAN’S BODY, AN JUST LIKE ANY OTHER ORGANS, BRAIN 🧠 CAN GET SICK TOO.
Stop 🛑 the stigma of mental illness.
Thank you ☺️ for joining me on this Page. ❤️- 🌻 Sophie
