The reason why mental illness scares so many people is because they don’t know how to deal with it or when faced with it, people don’t know what to do. The behavior is unpredictable. The majority of people live a life of usual norms and a person with a mental illness lives a life of unpredictable norms. Mental Illness affects people differently. There are a number of reasons why people have a mental illness. Even when it stares you straight in the face, you still don’t know the answer or how to help someone to fix it. My book “Extraordinary Happenings on the Edge of Lunacy” sheds some light on the behavior of someone with a mental illness. It is a story of a hard fought battle by a beautiful woman, a mother struggling to care for her 5 children.
Mental Illness is not accepted so people with the condition have to act fake in order to be accepted. Mental Illness is real and must be taken serious. People with mental illness aren’t faking it. They don’t make up things. What happens to them is real and we must try to understand that. Mental Illness is a condition that is unconditional. It may have boundaries, but the limits of the condition is far reaching.
Good advice given in story telling through my book. Mental illness is not crazy. Mental illness is not being an idiot. Mental illness is a part of life that best describes a person. Even though mental illness is unstable and unpredictable, you know and see it and even then it scares people. Mentally ill people are not targeted and have never been targeted to get addicted to alcohol or get addicted to cigarettes. Mentally ill people chose to use alcohol and use cigarettes at there own free will. Mentally ill people’s brain may be unstable but they aren’t dumb and stupid. Mentally ill people feel and love and have emotional ups and downs just like the next person. In my book “Extraordinary Happenings on the Edge of Lunacy”, I describes the beautiful deficiencies my dear mother had and how she conquered climbing the hills in her life.
