My mum and dad don’t have mental illness. They have careers of more than 40 years and are on the verge of retirement.

I do have an uncle and cousin with schizophrenia.

as far as we ever found out there was a distant great aunt that they hid away because she was mentally ill…this was like in the early 1900’s…sad…I’m the only one that proved schizophrenia is in our family though…

No, neither of my parents have a mental disorder.

No one in my family or distant family has mi.

My parents don’t have mental illness. But my grannie had sz real bad

is he still alive, your dad?

my dad has always had anxiety,
but it was just where and how he lived.

my mom was on meds a little while for depression.

neither of them are full blown like me.

That’s cool you love your parents egofree.
I love mine too though they’re a little bonkers sometimes.

They love me in their own special ways, I guess…

I love them both deeply because they have done so much for me.

It’s not obvious but basically if us kids weren’t alive their lives would be so much easier.

My father has inherited the mental illness gene and passed on the disease to me; however, my father has not been diagnosed with any mental illness at all.
