When it comes to psychiatric drugs, there are many people who still think that taking them is the “easy way out.”

We’ve come so far in discussing mental illness that we can forget that, like casual sexism, casual stigma still exists. I’ve had a few clashes over the past few weeks that have been a stark reminder that, whether from thoughtlessness or callousness, so many of the old narratives are still strong.

Perhaps the fact that I was struggling to stay healthy during this time made the clashes all the more painful. I have bipolar disorder and as such must carefully manage my health to prevent episodes which, while clearly not fatal as yet, have the potential to become so. I feel like I’m always banging that drum, but mental illness is a life-threatening illness and should be treated as such when we talk about it.
