Hi Heatha, what you wrote is right on the mark, at least for me. After I picked a place in a wall for my ashes to be as close to my mom as possible, ( she has not passed yet), I realized my spot was in total darkness...never any sun light. I told my family that I feel like I have lived in total darkness all my life and I don't want my ashes to be there too. Even though they are ashes and I believe my Spirit will be free, it is too much for me to bear that in death, any part of me, if only my ashes, would remain in darkness forever. I told them I want my ashes spread and where. I will finally be totally free and all of me, at last, in total Light.

Welcome to anyone and to everyone who has or want to join this group. No need to specify the mental illness you are referring to in this group, ie: whether you have been diagnosed with it or if it runs in your family. Often times, there is stigma with mental illness, shoving the person into a hiding place in the soul. No need to feel that way here. If you want to open up that place of "hiding", you can, if not, no need. You are welcome here. This is a place that is safe.

Hi,

I have mentally ill sister with Autism and I become very sensitive when people mistreat her. Please know that not all mental health professionals are bad. There are some that have empathy and compassion. I am a nurse and I try to treat patients like they want to be treated. At the same time, I want to maintain their safety. So, I may restrict them from doing things that may do them some harm....Too, it's how (yelling vs. calm) you say things and not what you say sometimes. It's unfortunate that some do not how to treat patients in the proper way. 1 Timothy 3: 1-5

I have a mental illness and it scares me that this could happen to me. I have been mistreated by the police and when I have been in psych. hospitals. When will professionals learn how to treat HUMANS in crisis? I do not want to be killed due to a crisis.
