All I want for christmas is mental stability
I finally got hold of my Union.
No sick pay for me whilst out for treatment.
Apparently conversations have been going on without my knowledge.
According to Human Resources: do I not pose a danger to the children that I work with? Why is the treatment so long? Why is it so intensive?
POSE A FUCKING DANGER?
They hear “mental health” and they fucking freak out and judge. Just like most people do.
I’m sick of the stigma.
I’m sick of the misconceptions and assumptions.
Mental illness doesn’t mean you are batshit crazy.
Mental illness doesn’t mean that you are going to harm someone.
Mental illness doesn’t mean you are an anomaly of the human race.
Mental illness doesn’t mean you are a danger.
Mental illness doesn’t mean you are weak. It’s the opposite in fact.
Mental illness doesn’t mean that you can’t stand up for yourself. Sometimes, it just means you need more time.
Mental illness doesn’t make you less of a person.
Mental illness means that your mind is unwell and it may need treatment to help the mind heal.
Next time someone says they have a sore throat, shall I ask if they pose a danger in terms of hurting the children they work with? Shall I tell them that by choosing to treat the illness they have made their argument to get better invalid?
Mental illness should not be instantaneously feared upon hearing the word.
Open your fucking minds.
Open your fucking eyes.
Open. Your. Eyes.

I’M SO FUCKING AGGRESSIVE……………
WORLD I’M SORRY
