Myth: Mental Health problems are rare.

HAHA, people actually think that? Ain’t that some shit. For your information, one in four people will experience a Mental Health problem .Mental illnesses aren’t uncommon. I have been struggling with my Mental Health for some time now. So I think I kind of understand this shit a little more. Mental Illness happens, and it doesn’t discriminate. We are in 2022. I think it’s time for Mental Health to be a priority in life and the world.

Let’s Talk Therapy

Mental Health issues are more common than diabetes or even cancer. Everyone experiences it at least once in their lifetime. Even though it affects millions, only about half will actually look for help. Men are the least likely to get treatment. I’m sure that has everything to do with the stigma surrounding masculinity….LOL. Boys are taught to be “manly men”. Hide your emotions, don’t cry, don’t be a baby. It’s all bullshit. Boys need help the same way that girls do. There’s NO SHAME in admitting you are struggling and need help that you can’t give yourself.


Sometimes I get the urge to stop taking my meds. It usually happens when I start to feel good, ya know? Like I’m normal. It took a long time for me to realize that they aren’t cures, they’re treatments. They help manage your symptoms, not get rid of them completely. Ongoing treatment is usually required to keep Mental Illness symptoms in check, so you can live a life you can enjoy. Thinking about being on the pills for my entire life makes me tired sometimes. So, what are we supposed to do when we start questioning our path to recovery? There are different ways to go about it, but you should always choose the safest way. If you are thinking of stopping or switching your path of treatment, make sure you speak with your doctor.
