It’s Hump Day and I’m already dreaming about the weekend! The kids and I are taking a short trip with my mom and sister. I’m really looking forward to it! Do you have any plans for Labor Day weekend?
Before I started struggling with anxiety, I didn’t see a doctor regularly. I would go to a walk-in clinic if I was sick. For the longest time I didn’t even have a primary care provider. Now I see a psychiatrist every 3 months, a therapist as needed (when needed I’ll see them every 2-4 weeks), and I make a point to have an annual physical to stay on top of my health. For some reason I still have this inner dialogue that resists the practice of seeing a doctor regularly. That inner voice doesn’t like the idea of being one of “those people” that is always at the doctor’s office. Always fooling with medicine and refills and managing a condition. The rational side of me pushes back and says that’s the same bullshit stigma I’m trying to break by being so open about my anxiety. There’s nothing 𝘸𝘳𝘰𝘯𝘨 with having a medical condition that needs constant treatment — and anxiety 𝙞𝙨 a medical condition. It’s just as valid as any other. I don’t mean to perpetuate ableist ideology in this post. However, I am trying to share how the stigma surrounding mental illness is pervasive and can even be internalized by those who struggle with it. I also want to underscore that it’s okay to have those feelings. Don’t add shame on top of everything. I have those feelings, but I push back against them and I reject them. I mean it when I say I want to end the stigma against mental illness. Sometimes that work starts from within.
