Great article Kitty, I appreciate your honesty. You know what I can’t stand is when those suffering from a mental illness constantly update their status on FB with things like, “Today was not a good day”. “Feeling devastated.” I think that’s just attention seeking & just drags all the healthy minded people down with them. It’s like they want to upset everyone around them who reads their posts. It achieves nothing. I think they’d be better off talking to their loved ones IRL to help deal with their issues. However if someone wants to raise awareness of mental health issues by starting a FB fundraiser then that’s something positive!
