Depression is like being in the deepest abyss or cave, while above you, the light of the world goes on its merry way. Anxiety can range from a feeling of general nervousness to a full-blown panic attack. I hope that what I write about today will help others who also suffer from mental illness, as I do.
I am writing anonymously to protect my daughter. She is mentally ill at the moment and suffers from, among other things, depression. I take no chances. I also won't name the corporation that is driving me insane. I am afraid of it. I'm sure it's much the same as all the others anyhow. I'll call it "The Beast."
Whenever a person with a mental disorder (or assumed to have a mental disorder), veteran or civilian, commits a violent act that makes headlines, there is a call to address the "mental health issue" in violent crimes. However, what is meant by the "mental health issue" is generally unclear. The fact is that killings and overall violence are extremely rare by people with serious mental illness.
