A Dysphoric Utopia

toerning:

We’re still unpacking in the new apartment.  Yesterday I found a storage box filled with old journals, and I found this entry from the summer I turned 16.  So amazing, adorable, embarrassing, wonderful.  This is my response, 8 years later.

Keep good company.

This is my day job. My night job involves staring into space, wrapping my arms around my knees and rocking back and forth, and self-loathing

It was nice

I usually try to go to “social” events, but I don’t really know anyone. Yet I still made an effort to go to this one.

Is this what crazy looks like?

Mental illness can happen to anyone - regardless of age, race, gender, etc. It doesn’t care who you are. It doesn’t matter how someone looks. People can be suffering or even suicidal, and still have a smile on their face. It does not make their struggles any less important or serious. Put an end to stereotyping and stigmatization.

Submission Photoset 7/? [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8]

Message me if you have any comments, questions, or concerns.


Wanted to reblog this important post.  Such an important project to fight stigma against mental illness. Also, such an important and vital message - mental illness does not discriminate - mental illness doesn’t care about age, race, gender, economic level, education level, what type of career you have, if you have children, if you grew up in a stable or unstable environment. We can live with mental illness and still wear a smile on our face. We can be suffering, even suicidal, and still laugh. We do it - to make it through our days.

This project - Is this what crazy looks like? - serves as a strong reminder that each and every day we meet people who might be struggling, who might be feeling frightened or alone…and that just a small “how are you?” might just save their life.

I’m honored to be in this group (fourth row on the end)!! 

If you’d like to be a part of this project, you can submit your photo, first name, diagnosis and blog address to www.steph-in-wonderland.tumblr.com. Participation is completely voluntary and you can opt out at anytime leading up to the post date.
