A different look at mental illness.
Mental illness from the publics view as opposed to "real illness" is that the "sufferer" is causing this too himself- and he "just needs to change his attitude and pull up his panties.One guy gets "the flu and its 100% out of his control and how unlucky he were too get it"- the other one "gets depression and social anxiety- "oh well thats 100% in you're control and ur a lil crybaby who made urself get it".
In the book How too win friends and influence people the author talks about mental illness: He says that there is no such thing as mental illness, nothing we can meassure in a lab- what it is he says is just a deep need to feel important. "This is my story, this is my mental illness" look how special i am. He's saying we live in delusion because reality is too much for us, and we never got to be someone of importance so we made this up instead.
What are you're thoughts on the level of responsobility of these "illnesses"? How much is self created? Is it all self created? Or would everyone react like this if they had theire bodies riddled in adrenaline and cortisol?
