Being diagnosed with a mental disorder is never easy to accept, but being stigmatized after your friends and colleagues get to know you’re “crazy” is even worse. It hurts everytime there’s an indirect remark, an accusation being thrown, comments like “karma” and “possessed”. It’s embarrassing to be a schizophrenic, it’s never fun being a maniac, and it feels horrible being depressed, but not everyone understands.

Stop the stigma, it makes us feel like animals, instead of humans. We want to be normal just like how you want us to be normal.

To those suffering, you are brave and resilient. Keep going, you will recover eventually. Look forward to that light at the end of the tunnel.
