A few words 'bout our blog
Greetings, visitors! We decided to create a blog concerning mental illnesses, and just about everything related to this subject.
There are some reasons for choosing this topic. First of all, we both have personal, rich experiences, with mental health issues. We would like to share our experience, and let you understand at least a bit, what it's like, to have a mental illness.
Second of all, we want to spread awareness and information about mental health issues. It seems to us, that, at least in the Czech Republic, there are way too many prejudices and people who believe in false information about these illnesses. We plan to write articles, targeting all sorts and varieties of mental illnesses, conditions and disorders, starting with the most commonly know, such as depression, anxiety ect.
We also hope to reduce the stigma about MI. Practically, the only difference is, our brain's working a bit differently than it normally works. But that doesn't make us superior nor inferior to anyone, it also doesn't make us better or worse than everyone else! We're just a bit different.
People and their brains are like colors. Everyone has their own, unique color. It's like a variety and a spectrum of shades. While most of the population tilt towards one side, we tilt to the other. We would like to let other people know, that mentally ill people are in the core exactly the same as everybody else in this world. They have hobbies, interests, joys and troubles. They are children, mothers, fathers, students, lectors, venders, lawyers, doctors... but mainly, they are people.We just have a specifically wonderful color inside of us.
