Default stigma

Some reading on the subject.

4 ways that mental health is commonly shamed- from DiscoveryMood Blog
  • includes the casual use of terms such as “depressed” or ‘OCD”
  • calling others "psycho" or "crazy"
  • labelling someone because of their particular condition
  • judging others due to their behaviour

NAMI - The stigma of anxiety disorder

Excellent personal story article. This is spot on and I could almost have written it myself except for some things such as isolating from the world. I am now and was always just fine isolating from the world as much as I can. Also, I may be wrong but the author "sounds" young but I am not young so am more advanced you might say in the understanding and control of my own anxiety these days.
