Stigma – Acceptance – How Mental Illness Shows

I want to talk about mental illness acceptance and how it shows in different people.

It’s difficult, a struggle, to socialize, to accept if someone is mentally ill. They don’t understand. They don’t try to understand. That’s the reason people who are mentally ill keep it to themselves.

Depression – apathy, crying, anger
Bipolar Disorder – emotional ups and downs
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder – flashbacks
Anxiety – inhibited (try but can’t)
Schizophrenia – fear
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder – attention all over the place
Postpartum Depression – apathy, fear, anger, inhibition
Borderline Personality Disorder – anger

About Me

Hello! Welcome! My name is Katy!
You can find me drinking coffee until it’s time for wine. Currently have 5 tattoos, but plans for more are in the works.
I’m a birthmom over 8 years post placement. I’ve been in a birthmom support group since November 2018, and will be leading my own come May 2023.
On Sunday mornings you can usually find me in the nursery or on the production team at church.
Various times throughout the year, you can find me staying with someone’s dog(s) while they’re away on a trip – so don’t be surprised if there are stories or pictures every so often.
