    Unfortunately so. There's been a few tomes Ive seen on e.g. tumblr, people with mental illnesses using it as some form of 'aethstetic' to gain followers and stuff. Then their followers start to think the same and refuse to get help because thats they're "brand". Its such a toxic way of thinking but unfortunately it happens.

    I've had depression and also have current stuff going on and you could offer me either perfect mental health or all of Mark Zuckerberg's money and I'd take the recovery. Who the **** gives a **** about followers when they're suffering like this?

    I dont know. And unfortunately that brings up tge debate of are they actually mentally ill or just putting it on for followers, which then makes some people believe that everyone with mental health issues are putting it on. There's some toxic people and places on the internet.

    Sorry, I didn't mean to sound like I was having a go at you. I just don't understand some people at all. It boggles the mind, it really really does. :confused:

    No need to apologies mate. It confuses me too, I don't get why you wouldn't want to 'get better', but hey, some people are just... different and confusing

    For me, I say I'm okay. i don't feel mentally unstable which is good but I like to be more of a positive person.
