A subject that is apparently taboo is psychological and emotional illness.
If a person has a physical illness or handicap we’re quick to show concern and understanding. It appears too many of us seem to feel emotional and mental illness is something to be ashamed of or prevented.
The world lacks understanding and empathy for mental and emotional illness. Too few people realize that there are individuals who have suffered emotional and mental illness; which have led to the world in a manner that centuries after their work is still preserved. An artist like Animal Control Service Van Gogh is the best example.
It appears that who we choose to associate with reflects our own perception of which we are.
When it’s someone less than perfect we feel less than perfect through our association with them.
I wonder if we’re mad at their imperfections or are the ones we see in our self.
Some people have panic attacks.
There is a lack of understanding or compassion.
We as a country have made mental and emotional illness into something to be ashamed of. So many people suffer many types of emotional and mental illness but stay quiet, suffering alone to avoid being labeled.
People appear to believe they will need to identify with perfect minds, faces, bodies, and psychological and emotional well being.
Television and theater have captured our minds and thoughts of how we ought to be.
We’re afraid to know who we really are.
No acting for me anymore; personally I’m all set to walk off stage, and just be true to myself.
Welfare and Disablity
To qualify for any sort of government assistance, welfare, disability, housing, each person is carefully screened and needs evidence of the situation.
Welfare is now a slave labor program,because the companies that hire people on welfare or exempt from paying min wage and get a tax break.
Anyone who works should be qualified for min wage according to our min .wage law,that is equal pay of min wage,regardless of race,handicap or nationality.
To receive any type of disability be prepared for a very long hard battle.
Your private medical records aren’t enough.
You’re sent to the doctors who are hired by SS, and in their opinion you are capable of working.Going to court takes decades and more than one time for disabled to get funds.
These needy people who have no way of transportation have endles appointments to go to for screening.
When you’re in need you feel very alone and ashamed,sometime too embarrassed to ask for help.
Perhaps that is the cause of some suicides.
For those who believe that people can automatically receive money from the government don’t know how well people are screened.
Than when you finally receive disability,it is about $574.00 per month.
Imagine living on this and imagine not having any way of transportation.
People on government help live in proverty or below proverty level.Those who live on low income are ashamed because of society’s lack of acceptance people who get government assistance .People that receive government assistance do so because of need often at the price of their self respect, self esteem, dignity and pride.
