what bothers me most about this site (and in general I guess) is all the teenagers calling their natural hormonal mood swings for their age a mental illness
not that having a mental illness is some exclusive club or anything to be “proud” of, but I think it makes it more difficult for the people on here who do actually have them to be heard or get help
or what’s worse the people that don’t actually have them who end up feeling better thinking that those things can be “cured” when really you’re just a regular 16 year old who sometimes feels sad and it will go away just as naturally as it came .
You know recovery from mental illness is a thing, right?
that’s not what I’m talking about
I’m talking about how their natural mood swings go away so they go on believing that mental illness is just “cured over time”
Yep, that’s a thing too: it’s called ‘spontaneous remission’.
well PLEASE inform me what the fuck your mental illness is because anyone with a functioning brain can see that I’m talking about people who D-O-N-T actually have a mental illness. not people who do and have spontaneous remission, people who are having NATURAL mood swings.
didn’t think I’d have to literally spell it out for you but I guess that will be my next complaint post: the intelligence level on tumblr
