Default Comic--what if we treat physical illness like we do mental illness...

I know this was supposed to be funny...but it's more thought provoking than anything.

Thanks for this! It really does make you think. The way people treat mental illness is just so bizarre to me. We can't help it anymore than someone with cancer or diabetes.

That is sooo funny. I love it. I want that comic to hang on my wall.

Yeah I saw this on Facebook yesterday. It does make you think, but it also made me sad to think how many people have to undergo thoughtless comments or misunderstanding of what MI is like.

This is a great find. I should send it to my co-woker who likes to send me e-mails about people who overcame depression just because they decided blah blah blah....

My friend's father is in hospital for severe suicidal depression and undergoing ECT at the moment, and she talked to her course director at Uni about deferring her exams until the summer so she can focus on her father. When he was told her father had depression, he said "well thank god it's not fatal!" - well it very nearly was!! Some people have no idea!

I posted the link of this comic to my co-worker who always sends me the BS stuff about how menal illness is just all in your head. I sent it in a very lighthearted way. She responded back to me "Wow " And I sent back to her "It's funny because it's true! Haha!" She responded "Definately."

Mwahahahaha....

Okay so it was passive aggressive, I admit it....
