For all you readers who have mental health difficulties and have kept them hidden or secret... I'd like to take you all back to the beginning of my journey at this Hospital. When I was told I'd be coming here, I decided I had to tell everyone because I knew it was a long-term Hospital and there was no way I could lie about where I was for so long. So, to all the secret sufferers; I hope the response I got for my confession on Facebook will instill some hope and confidence in you. I realise I can't guarantee you'll get the same but isn't it worth a go?
Aimee Wilson13 July 2012 the stigma of mental health has meant I've not always been very honest with people who I'm not very close to but now things have gotten to a whole new level I've decided to announce to the world of Facebook that I have a mental health Disorder. It's now gotten to the stage where I've agreed to go into a residential treatment hospital in ********. I know this status will mean I find out who my true friends are and I'm finally ok with this because there is no shame in getting help or admitting to something like this. 'Judging a person does not define who they are, it defines who you are.' I refuse to accept any shit for this status and any abuse will be reported but I'm hopeful that my friends will be a lot more decent than to stoop that low.
