You keep a lot of us sane in this insane world <3 BassBeLouder101 says: September 1, 2016 at 4:55 am I think part of the reason rates of anxiety and depression have become so astronomically high is because psychology has only just recently become seen as a serious science (even now, it’s still viewed by many as a psuedo-science) and before then, being seen as mentally ill was enough to make one a complete social pariah, thus encouraging people NOT admit to these feelings (much less even having a firm enough grasp on the concept of it to voice it). I really think it is frankly irresponsible to throw all psychotropic drugs under the bus just because of the obvious abuse of Big Pharma. Of course the dispensing of medication for the sake of capitalism is morally reprehensible, but to be perfectly blunt, they work for many people, and you create a terrible stigma when you deny the use of them. This is also coming from a person who disassociates to the point of losing touch with reality and suffers from paranoid/suicidal manic episodes if not medicated. I know a vegan lifestyle has helped many find emotional peace, but to be quite honest, it has done nothing for me in terms of mental health (still feel the physical benefits, of course, and enjoy being able to live my life knowing that I am not contributing to horrendous exploitation). A huge issue with discussing mental health is that “anxiety and depression” becomes a catch all for every single mental illness. While they can indeed exist as individual mental illnesses, they are often times apart of co-occuring disorders. You absolutely cannot imply that taking away medication from someone with paranoid schizophrenia is going to have the same effect as someone who has major depressive disorder. I appreciate what you’re saying, but I do urge you to be careful about stigmatizing the already stigmatized. Again, I enjoyed this video, and maybe it seems like I am getting hung up on such a small part of your message, but I needed to point it out. littlelotti24 says: September 1, 2016 at 4:55 am This entire video is me right now Aelita says: September 1, 2016 at 4:55 am Your videos are honestly the most comforting yet truthful thing and they always mark me in some kind of way.
