Comment on Read “Anxious All Over” on Stigma Fighters by YankeeDoodleSaudi.
To discuss another facet to the world of stigma, often those in certain religious communities are judged for their anxieties and told to “pray more, harder, or better”. I have also been told that my anxiety is a symptom of my weak faith in God…..
The stigma of mental illness can be completely isolating and your words were captivating and rang true. Thank you so much 🙂

No problem. Honestly, since my entire family struggles with various anxiety related illness; I knew that my disorder had nothing to do with a weakness in me. In fact, I try to use it as a testament to my strength. Despite my anxiety, I am brave. 🙂
