Re: What's the worst advice you've ever been given about your mental illness? - August 31st 2011, 08:53 AM

"Get over it" - Yeah, okay, I'll work on that...

"If you keep on crying in front of X, he/she is going to stop hanging out with you." - true in some cases, but hey, you find out who your friends are, right?

"Do you even know how lucky you are? [insert story about how great my life must be and how bad some people have it]" - This is usually where I'd like to explain exactly what my life has been like and see how they feel then, but this usually comes from know-it-all class mates and co-workers, which usually puts us in a public place, which would make announcing such things embarrassing and possibly inappropriate.

The walls are high, the walls are strong
I've been trapped in this castle that I built for far too long
You have surrounded me, a sea on every side
The cracks are forming and I've got no where to hide
