Suffering?

Why do we say that we suffer from a mental illness? Oh, that person suffers from depression. Um, no. You are living with depression. You are battling anxiety. You are dealing with borderline like the badass you are. Of course we go through times of suffering and pain that you can’t even put into words. But attaching the suffering to the mental illness gives it so much power, which it does not have over us. We are living with a mental illness which causes us to suffer at times. It is not a life sentence of suffering.

Yours Truly,
