With the horror of the shootings in Connecticut, mental illness and the difficulty in getting treatment is getting a lot of exposure. I just wish that all forms of mental illness were not being painted with the same brush.
I have suffered with depression for many years. The only person I’m likely to harm is myself. I know many other people with the same problem, but right now, I feel like I’m one of those being blamed for murders, just about daily.
To say that a person has a mental illness is just too general. Yes, all form of mental illness would benefit from treatment that is easier to obtain and afford. But we’re not all mass murderers.
