I know I have been partially absent from my blog lately.

I was really feeling terrible when I was in the hospital with pancreatitis, and then I pretty much immediately had a friend go into the hospital with an illness.

I have been reminded of how Archaic of opinions some of those in the medical profession hold about mental illness. There really is a need for better education about how people with a mental health diagnosis can also be just sick.

Some doctors and others are amazing. I am definitely not here to disparage an entire profession.

There is just a clear need for more education.

I hope we get there soon for all of our sakes.

  1. Yep, so very true. There is always more to learn for all of us, and its so easy to forget that no matter the label (aka diagnosis), the person in front of you seeking care is just that, first and foremost a human being who is needing help.
