Good ideas about mental illness management

Posted by Tabitha on October 4, 2017, at 14:17:33

I like this blog post about unhelpful ways to think about mental illness, and more helpful ways.

I was very susceptible to the idea of the therapist as the wise healer who knew what I needed, and medication management as a route to that med combo that would make my brain "normal". This led to disillusionment, and made me vulnerable to exploitation.

Like the author of this piece, I wish I'd known how to think of mental illness management as gaining tools and skills to help me function and feel better despite my janky brain.
