I Despise People Who Mock Mental Illness

How low can you go? 1,754 People

    Personality

    It's easy at times to mock those with mental health problems, the people who do have the worst mental health problem of all. An unattractive personality.

    It's Irritating

    Now, it doesn't bug me when people say "She's crazy/wacky/loopy" but when people say the "r" word...that gets to me. I don't claim to be innocent, either, because I've said it a few times before in the past. Then I realized that making fun of someone who can't defend themselves...

    Vulgar

    There is something dumb about the superiority of those who think they are better than others. For whatever reasons they may think so, it always is silly because it is unfounded. Matters like health and money are vain and to be lost forever. Mental health is a matter of culture...

    I've never meet anyone that suffering because of mental illness before (at least not that I know). I live in a society that believe that there are no such thing as mental illness: it's either your faith just not strong enough or you are just a plain weird crybaby. But I respect...
