I decided to let go of the past then I find out that one of my professors in college saw me at a mental hospital and actually applied some tests on me.
He remember me and for some reason I don’t know if I should talk about it or not.
I’m not on medication, I’m doing fantastic and I have a great life without any signs of mental illness.
But wait, WHY SHOULD I BE ASHAMED? When there’s a cancer survivor everyone claps and cheers, but when someone was in a mental hospital, recovered from addiction or had a suicide attempt he/she needs to go hide under a rock?
Not going to happen. Yes I had depression,yes I tried to kill myself, yes I had trauma because of sexual abuse, yes I had hallucinations, yes, in fact I was a mental health patient but I am not my past and I am not an illness.
We need to start talking and make this elephant dissapear .
