So is it true that the struggles with Mental Health issues are being most slept on by those who act like they love and care about you? Those who are closer to you?
Here’s what I’ve noticed; no one appears to care about how serious Mental Health, Depression and Suicide really is until they’re either directly affected by it in some way or it hits home by someone being affected by it that are family who either takes their life or almost does it, and now people want to pay attention and take it serious when all actuality the signs were clearly shown to you Right Be 4 Your Eyez before hand.
Why do people naught care when the love one is here, but as soon as something tragic happens you have their undivided attention now that your either almost dead or laying in a casket? Didn’t have much to say to you in the physical, made excuses to how they lack in communication skills or they don’t know how to love someone who suffers from mental illness so, they basically abandon them, and or blame them for having such a struggle, but now that you are gone they want to pretend that they loved you so………….. much, and try to have all the communication and conversation (crocodile tears pouring) in the world with you, does that really count now that you are gone?
I’m just so serious with knowing what others have to truly say about this, because to me, that seems a little fake for them to commit such acts on people who they say they truly care about, but that’s just me, but I am raising topic of these thoughts for discussion for anyone who sees, and can prove different. Anyhow, I also ran across, and while reading an authors story about her own hands on experiences with family suffering from Depression and Mental Illnesses, I found her story so true, and truly powerful, and on point; that I wanted to share it with y’all.
