We are the mentally ill who have been coralled in

When people indicate that they are afraid of the mentally ill, I don’t think they are thinking of us. Because we are under our own and other’s surveillance. We are the tamed. We are safe and should think of ourselves in these terms. So relax and enjoy. You’ve been found and you’re fine.:slightly_smiling_face:


Prior to being diagnosed and starting anti-psychotics I often wondered, seriously, why they let people like me just wonder around. I would do my best at making decisions for my life but always felt like it was a little dangerous that I was steering this ship. I am still flabbergasted by the fact that I’m free to decide things but I know there are people much worse than me out there doing the same thing and messing it up worse than me, that’s what really scares me.
