Hall of Shame

A collection of stupid quotes by people spreading stigma against people with depression.  Here’s to hoping that by posting these and declaring them to be ridiculous, these phrases lose a little bit of their power.

  1. “Why do you listen to your therapist [about how to treat your depression] more than me?”      ~someone who is no longer my friend (and perhaps never was)
  2. “99% percent of people are taking antidepressants as substance abuse.”       ~some idiot on Quora
  3. “Your problem is you need to stop thinking so negatively!”     ~yet another clueless person of the internet
  4. “Why hasn’t [person with depression] apologized to me personally for being sick?”     ~another person I won’t talk to after her treatment of one of my best friends who had depression
  5. “Depression isn’t real.”    ~a moronic “Big Brother” contestant on Twitter

What things that people have said to you about your mental health would you put in your “Hall of Shame”?

As a dog returns to its vomit, so fools repeat their folly.”  ~Proverbs 26:11
