Being labelled “mentally ill” and receiving a diagnosis from the big book of mental illnesses can be disabling. It can also be quite useful – as Barrie discovered.

It’s so true.
But I felt so ashamed of my illness because of trauma the first episode.
I cut myself off from my family origin.
I din’t feel good enough in their eyes.
Love the scary clown image…aka diagnosis is like a furry spider with fangs who just moved into your bed.
