When you don’t have mental health, it may change your point of view on what psychological health is. The list provided by User-11339196036930217825 is intriguing. I like the psychodynamic variation most importantly due to the fact that it leaves the most room for distinctions without evaluating, I believe.
I’m told I’m bipolar. Now, I’m feeling an excellent offer of anguish. I don’t want anyone in the real world to know. I’m feeling a lack of love– which is one of the requirements of the psychodynamicists. I have actually been thinking that the depth of my misery about ever being able to have the sort of love I want is such that nonexistence would be more suitable.
Luckily, I have children, and I couldn’t do that to them.But it does condemn me to a life of enduring discomfort.
I’ve been searching for love. But when I discover it, I damage it. I feel like there are 2 parts of my brain. One is desperate to make me healthy and the other is similarly convinced that I do not deserve any joy, because it will inevitably come at the cost of the happiness of people I love. I am caught. And trapped creatures do illogical things.
So even though I have a medical diagnosis, I do not truly believe I’m mentally ill. I believe I am in an untenable situation, and I am doing the very best I can, offered the impossibility of my alternatives. There is no way out for me. In some cases I can handle that and sometimes the pain becomes excessive and I have an “episode” of “depression.”
To get out of this, I will have to pick to hurt someone I enjoy quite. My other half, in particular. Somehow, I can refrain from doing this. Not yet, anyway.
If I liked alcohol or drugs, I would dull my discomfort. I like my brain to feel clear more than I do not like the pain of anguish. That’s most likely enough to get me diagnosed right there.
I don’t believe I’m actually mentally ill. I think I’m healthy enough. Certainly, I think most people who are identified do not have much illness. I think they are mostly trapped in circumstances where they have no other way out, without injuring somebody they like. They take it out on themselves. For the majority of us, the issue is love. We are not permitted to love the individual or in the way we require to, since to do so, would be to incur the rage of the majority of people.
So mental health is sustained by love. Mental illness occurs when you can not, for whatever reason, express your love in an acceptable method.
When you can’t enjoy the method you wish to, you do all examples that individuals call mental disorder. You use mind altering compounds all the time. You cut yourself, starve yourself, reject yourself happiness. You call yourself names. You reject your own worth. You dissassociate inside your head, and form several self entities that war with each other. Sometimes we experience these entities as voices or people from outdoors.
We do all kinds of things to sidetrack ourselves from the pain. Invest cash. Act out in all sort of ways. Stop appreciating ourselves. Act violent on occasion. We do antisocial things in order to call attention to ourselves and possibly get assistance. Other than almost everybody just sees the antisocial and strange behavior. Nobody translucents to the need for love. Not even most others who are diagnosed. Nobody, as far as I know, is talking about this. Not that I have done a lit review. I ‘d expect to hear about it somewhere.
I know when I discuss it to psychologically ill individuals, they frequently nod their heads at me, as if it makes sense. Possibly I’m simply seeing what I want to see. Or maybe the mental profession has actually been totally missing the boat for a long time.
Naw. Couldn’t be. They all have a great deal of education. They must know what they are doing. Right?
Review Girard’s list again. Exists anything there that is concrete and not open to a great deal of interpretation? I believe mental disorder is still like pornography to the Supreme Court. The professionals understand it when they see it. Not that my meaning would alter that. However perhaps it would start individuals believing along a line of thought that might actually help a few of us. Maybe society would begin to understand their role– the function of judging others and the harm that causes.
You can’t make people enjoy. You can’t just provide people love. There should be an easier way. Possibly acknowledging this is the issue and the service would make it much easier for us to discover a way to be healthy.
