This is the greatest thing I have ever seen. People do not understand that mental illnesses, such as depression, are actual chemical imbalances in your body. They are not brought on by choice. My dad was diagnosed with depression. He was so ashamed of it that he hid it from me and my brothers. A month later, he killed himself. The stigma that comes with mental illness made my Dad embarrassed to talk to his own kids about this problem because he felt like less of a man.
Erase the stigma. The more we talk about mental illness, the less likely it will end in suicide.
I can’t even express how much i love this, and I wish everyone at my school could see this. because I am so tired of being judged for something i can’t control.
Ali McWeeny’s left leg was amputated after a horrible boating accident. Doctors told her to find a new hobby. She ignored them, and began lifting 8 pound dumbbells in her hospital bed. The rest is history…
Now its time to ask yourself one question… What is your excuse?
Fuck this makes me feel like an asshole.
