    Our society stigmatizes any type of illness, mental or physical.
    It's bullshit.

    But I find that people try to claim their is no stigma, but then they also claim racism doesn't exist either, so who knows people are dumb.

    that's because they're not on the receiving end of the stigma

    sometimes people use mental illness as a crutch, many so called mental illnesses are treated as physiological when in fact they are psychological. In some cases a few of those people are just hypochondriacs, as to why they do it, I haven't looked into it at that depth.

    I didn't say I was, all I said was some people use it as a crutch.

    So what your telling me is that when I used to have thoughts of death every minute of every hour…then every hour when on anti depressants…when I took Effexor, Aropax (Paxil), Prozac, Cymbalta, Lithium, Lexapro, Remeron and Aurorix I was hypochondriac because they didn't work…when I took Zoloft and polarized a lot of people afterward when I became highly angry, suicidal and and irrational and losing good friends because of it…when I went to Dr #7 who reluctantly trialed me on hypothyroid meds and then miraculously my symptoms got better…but he still insisted on me taking Cymbalta…when I went to dr #8 who got me to do full endocrinologist checkup and found I was adrenal insufficient and needed DHEA, that I was deficient in thyroid hormone and I needed thyroid meds was hypochondria before all that…when I got stigmatized by my family, friends and the medical profession like that, sucked to be me. I very much doubt any person is hypochondriac, just a matter of perspective and finding out the reason why, and there is always a reason. Although there is something to be said that people could use it as an excuse for serious offenses in their lives.

    Thyroid, Depression and Mental Health

    You go to the doctor; you complain about your depression, or your anxiety, or your emotional swings, or your inability to concentrate, and onto your doctor’s favorite anti-depressant, anti-anxiety, lithium, or bi-polar med you go.

    But the problem with this scenario is that your depression or anxiety or other mental health problem is not a unique and unrelated illness. It’s most likely due to having a low free T3, the active thyroid hormone, and/or adrenal insufficiency. And this is especially common for patients treated with T4-only medications.

    And this problem is not limited to depression. Low thyroid hormones, and the common occurrence of sluggish, poorly functioning adrenals, can play a role in a variety of emotional and behavioral symptoms and disturbances, including anxiety, excessive fear, mood swings like bi-polar, rage, irritability, paranoid schizophrenia, confusion, dementia, obsessive/compulsive disorders, and mental aberrations.
    I like those sentiments.
