It’s really not okay. People should really stop reblogging this shit!
It could be really fucking hurtful to someone who is unsure if they have one of these problems or not.
It’s like saying “Your problem isn’t real because it only happens to you sometimes, dont fucking whine about it”
really, just… what the fuck. That’s so rude.
“Don’t tell me you understand depression because you get sad sometimes”
No, don’t ever fucking say that to someone. Being sad is not fun, don’t tell them that it’s not a big deal. Being sad IS a big deal.
“Don’t tell me you have anxiety because you get nervous before an exam”
Getting nervous before anything is having anxiety. You could say “i got anxiety before an exam” See? Yes you do get anxiety. everyone gets anxiety sometimes. It’s not fun, and don’t let anyone tell you your anxiety problems aren’t real.
I could go on, but i’m trying to keep this short. So i think you guys get the point.
Stop reblogging posts like that, Okay? Okay.
I could not disagree with you any more. I completely understand where they’re coming from and they irony here is you have no fucking idea what they’re talking about (and what you’re talking about). Getting anxious about a test is not the same and will never be the same and is in fact utterly comparable to having an anxiety disorder. Imagining you see shadows moving is not the same as visual hallucinations. Getting sad about something is not the same at all as having depression.
The same goes for all other items on this list.
