And if you get a diagnosis do they force you to take medication or a certain type? Might seem like a silly question, but I was talking to my Mom about it and it really freaked me out. I haven’t watched all your posters so sorry if you’ve talked about this already. Do you have any advice on how to deal with family members who don’t believe in mental illness and how to help them understand for kids? My son has mental illness and I have family members that think we are making it up and he’s just drama and too sensitive. So they expect him to behave like other kids his age when he can’t.
He is in therapy and has come leaps and bounds but they refuse to see it and think therapy is dumb and because I don’t punish the Lazy cat sewing room I do what I want poster in other words I will buy this way they did means we don’t do anything. Which isn’t true but I just don’t know how to handle this anymore with them. I grew up in foster homes where they didn’t even acknowledge depression as a real disorder. Just that something must be wrong with me and I should stop whatever it was and be like them. No thanks. If I had to choose, i’ll take depression and anxiety over ignorance and great judgement. Coaching yourself through negative emotions and traumatic experiences is another sign of a person being emotionally mature.

Patricia that bibliophile yes but part of the Lazy cat sewing room I do what I want poster in other words I will buy this hacking your way through the trauma is at some point connecting with a therapist. Such a shame that I feel like I am the only person out of the two who cares about solving the problem happy face. My mom has cycled through myriad of self-help programs and books and refuses to try therapy. Or she goes and tries to hit them with self-help jargon . I can’t make her change of course. It’s just a bit silly. Clearly if that program worked then the hundreds of similar options would unnecessary. I feel like a therapist doesn’t always have to be someone you find online or through a friend/fan, who went to school for it.
Sometimes the therapist can just be someone you know. Someone you tell your home decoration to and by doing that, you get to analyze your own home decoration, you’re still doing it on your own but helps lay it all out. Therapist, friend, FAM, even strangers or quietly in your mind. Boundaries can probably help. It sucks when you have to work with them. But your cat isn’t as mature as you are, but you have a healthy relationship with your pets I hope? Agreed. I think i’ve always had this problem. I went from not giving advice at all to always feeling obligated to giving advice to everyone. Ever since i’ve started college, i’ve been trying to break that habit.
