Before you pass judgment on one who is self destructing, itโ€™s important to remember they usually arenโ€™t trying to destroy themselves. Theyโ€™re trying to destroy something inside that doesnโ€™t belong. – JmStorm

Depressed Brain ๐Ÿง  VS Healthy Brain ๐Ÿง 

๐ŸŒป Sophieโ€™s World ๐ŸŒŽ

STOP ๐Ÿ›‘ 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, โ€œBut you donโ€™t look suicidal to me ?! Be positive, be grateful and think happy thoughts. Itโ€™s all in your head.โ€. ๐Ÿ˜‘ ๐Ÿ™„

You know what, in a way, thereโ€™s truth in it. Depression, anxiety , suicidal thoughts ๐Ÿ’ญ are all symptoms of a sick brain ๐Ÿค• ๐Ÿง .

And yes, it is true that our brain ๐Ÿง  is located inside our head ๐Ÿ˜Š.

I found this PET scan picture, and I want to share it with you guys.

PLEASE DONโ€™T GET DISCOURAGED OR ASHAMED IF YOU HAVE A MENTAL ILLNESS.

MENTAL ILLNESS/BRAIN DISORDERS ARE THE SICKNESS OF THE BRAIN ๐Ÿง . AND THE BRAIN IS AN ORGAN IN HUMANโ€™S BODY, AN JUST LIKE ANY OTHER ORGANS, BRAIN ๐Ÿง  CAN GET SICK TOO.

Stop ๐Ÿ›‘ the stigma of mental illness.

Thank you โ˜บ๏ธ for joining me on this Page. โค๏ธ- ๐ŸŒป Sophie
