via End the Stigma
Dear Hollywood, Television, and the People Who Believe their Programming Lies:
Stop stigmatizing people who have mental illnesses and mental disorders.
I have a trauma disorder. I am not a sociopath or a psychopath.
I have a dissociative disorder. I am not a homicidal maniac, nor do I live a double-life, maniacal or otherwise.
I suffer from depression. I am not insane or stupid or incapable or lazy.
I was raised by an abusive, lying narcissist. This did not turn me into an abusive, lying narcissist.
I was physically abused as a child. This did not turn me into an abusive person.
I was sexually abused as a child. This did not turn me into a sexual predator.
