People who suffer from any type of Mental Illness are often the recipients of health advice.
This might be because mental illnesses aren’t easily detectable from the outside or because it’s seemigly “normal” people who have them.
Those of us who are the victims of depression, anxiety, Bipolar, mood disorders, PPD, etc. take this advice with a grain of salt, and with the understanding that those giving it haven’t been in the situations we are.
They only want to help.
But sometimes to the people saying:
“Go outside and take a walk, the fresh air will take all your cares away”
“Read a good book and have a spa day!”
“It’s really not that bad is it? I mean, look at all the great things you have to be grateful for.”
We really want to tell them,
