Moritani Likes to Ramble: I hate lying... (A mental illness rant)

morimoritani:

My mom made me lie again. This time on my driver’s licence application. I just wish I didn’t have to lie. I see all these movements to be proud of things, proud of fatness, proud of gayness, proud of your race. But I’ve never seen anyone say they’re proud to be schizophrenic… Actually, I’ve never…

I know this isn’t directly related, but I figured you might appreciate this talk: http://www.ted.com/talks/elyn_saks_seeing_mental_illness.html

It’s from Elyn Saks, a PhD with Schizophrenia, talks about her experience and how we should 

Portray [people with mental illness] sympathetically, and portray them in all the richness and depth of their experience as people, and not as diagnoses.

How many of you are in love out there? How many? … You might be gay. Because I, too, am in love. And that’s part of the Gay Lifestyle.

Man is timid and apologetic… He is ashamed before the blade of grass or the blowing rose. These roses under my window make no reference to former roses or to better ones; they are for what they are; they exist with God to-day. There is no time to them. There is simply the rose; it is perfect in every moment of its existence.

Song got me through lots of dark nights.

"It’s never black and white, and always worth a fight
That battle for your own prosperity;
And some starry night, you will know you’re happy.
Will you ever dare to leave behind despair?
You wanna change but don’t wanna make the first step.
You’re just too scared, caught in your mental trap.
And I, I, I, I, I 
I still believe.”
