I think Howard & some of his cohorts probably do.
did you mean mental illness?
You ask the people that post HERE if they have mental health issues?
No, but I suffer from health.
OP obviously does.
be nice to OP, he's a Northerner
they are England's Southerners
I voted for Perot in '92, so, yes.
i wish i suffered from mental health.
This is how ya do it...You tell your Dr. you have bad anxiety bordering on panic attacks...Then ya get Klonopin.
Then you go to a shitty Dr. that's just opened a practice or isn't American..He'll get you a Rx for pot.
And then you don't care if you or anybody else is mentally ill.
One thing you learn in my line of work is that mental illness is a lot more prevalent Almost every family has someone ill, it's just that no one talks about it.
Sure, there are some crazy fucks in my family. Who doesn't have them? And why do we keep tap dancing around terminology. Crazy is the most convenient word for mentally ill folks. So let's keep the crazy alive. Same with retarded. But retarded folks aren't crazy they are just...retarded. Although you could have a crazy retarded person and that is fucked up. No fixing crazy retarded.
Mental health: yes.
Mental illness: no.
The thing is, what is considered "mental illness" keeps expanding over time. Take children, for example. When I was a fourth grader 40 years ago, there was a kid in my class named Evan who was the "class clown", always disruptive and doing all kinds of shit. Everyone had someone like that in their classes back then. It was considered normal, part of childhood. In the '80s and '90s, Evan would have been called "hyperactive" or "developmentally disabled". In the 2010s he'd have been "diagnosed" with ADHD and pumped full of Ritalin, to calm him down and make him quiet - the 21st century equivalent of Randall P. McMurphy's lobotomy in "Cuckoo's Nest". Everything gets labeled a "disorder" today and gets medicated. It's a little disturbing.
No but I lost a family member to Metal Health when he followed the tour for 2 years...
You realize that you post here, right?
I suffered from crazy parents. Does that count?
I just suffer.
