• Don't hold your breath waiting for people to feel sorry for you that will never happen take a cup of concrete and harden the fuck up no one cares why you are crying. I probably should add how I know this I wasted the best part of 10 years of my own life being a sad depressed turn out somedays even now I hide from the world.

      You’re an example of an uncaring person towards other people’s feelings and you are an example of what I said in the additional details. There are some people in the world who are caring. It’s just a matter of finding them. I don’t wait for anyone to feel sorry for me. That’s not how I work. It’s a matter of being emotionally responsive to others out of empathy. Obviously you are not one of those people. I understand about hiding from the world because a lot of people can hurt others mentally. There is no need to be lonely because there is always somebody for someone in this world who is right for them.

      My impression from 11estevo73 reply was he wasted ten years of life before he realized few if anyone cares. Especially the last sentence was "Even now I hide from the world". Presuming you are male since your username is11stevo73. Sorry if mistaken.
  • You can't just take 2 aspirins and feel better in the morning. Mental health is very complicated.
  • The truth about the reaction of people to others' mental health issues is that the average person has no idea how to understand your situation or how to be helpful. They are reacting superficially. If you cut your finger or broke a bone, the average person knows how to react. Mental health issues are baffling. Mental health issues demonstrate themselves in as many ways as there are people who suffer from them. I for one am at a loss to even recognize when a person's behavior is a result of mental health issues. The key to improving this situation is through public education. Meanwhile, you're stuck with an ignorant public.

      Well said.
  • One thing I learned while working at Devereux Foundation with Emotionally disturbed teens, is to show a sincere interest in each student and to be a really good listener. In the world I also have a sincere interest in people and treat them as I would want to be treated.
