s this stigma that mental illness making you an attention seeker. (I cant express this enough) YOU ARE NOT ATTENTION SEEKING BY TALKING ABOUT YOUR MENTAL ILLNESS. You are within full right to talk about how you feel! I encourage you with all my efforts to talk about how your mental illness. IF YOU FEEL BAD TELL PEOPLE. If you feel anxious, scared, upset, unsafe TELL SOMEONE. You are allowed to and you should.
