Isn’t it funny how you’re not taken seriously because u have a mental illness?!?! How your viewed as someone that has no cognition skills!! More or less cared for as if u were brain dead!! Or treated as if u have no feelings or emotions! Just like that healthcare worker that talks really loud to u and super slow so u can understand them better! I am not deaf and I am not dumb! Why are they talking to me like I am??? Or they view everything that u say as a blatant lie. I was asked by a healthcare worker onetime what I did for a living. I said I was a nurse! He said “your not a nurse, that’s such a lie!” I said “go look in my purse, my nursing license is in there!” He said “good one!” He laughed and then walked away! That was pretty degrading to me! Good grief! If people in the healthcare business treat u like this, what is the general population going to treat u like? I already know…it’s best to keep your diagnosis under wraps. Even if they find out later and they accepted u when they didn’t know, when they do find out…they treat u like u have the plague!! SMH!!!
