Yes, it is. Thank you for that bit of enlightenment. I was totally not aware that it was all in my head, and thanks to your wise words, I’m magically cured.
Can anyone relate to this, because I’m sure you can? Being told “it’s all in your head,” has got to be one of the most frustrating things. Or pray about it. Just don’t be sad. Have you tried counseling? You should try more natural medicine. Aromatherapy oils work.
News flash for the ignorant out there-I have tried everything. Mental illness is AN ILLNESS. It is quite literally, a chemical imbalance in your brain.
To tell me to pray about it, as if I haven’t spent nights crying out to God to make me “normal”, is offensive and hurtful. As if somehow I’m not strong in my faith or I don’t pray enough.
For everyone out there that says use oils- sorry, not sorry they cannot correct an actual medical condition. Smelling lavender, while calming for me, will not make my brain work right. It will not change the amount of dopamine I produce or don’t, it will not cause my neurons to fire correctly, or my hormones to be balanced.
My favorite, just don’t be sad. Why didn’t I think of that!! I am miraculously cured now, thanks. I will just not be sad even though my levels are so messed up that they are literally making me feel sad.
Just do me a favor, okay? Next time you feel the need to give an opinion about something you know nothing of, have never felt or experienced before, don’t. That’s not what I need. I need a hug, maybe a warm blanket, a cup of tea, a prayer-but I don’t need your medical advice.
