I thing you're amazing, you've also got such a great sense of humor,
courageous and what an asset you are to this World, thank God for people
like yourself. I'm so sorry that you had to go through any pain at all but
I feel like Im the only loser in this World, ive been to 2 "nut-houses" but
need to go for long, Medical Aid only gives us 3 weeks per year. I love you
for what a wonderful person you are. Warmest Regards Sherry

able to no longer be so resentful that I so wish you well, I'm still
struggling to keep a doctor,vs a nurse practitioner (cheaper) or therapist
who doesn't break down from 30 patients a day with impossible heart
breaking life stories a day, with my abandonment issues... Positive
pregnancy test on the bathroom floor is too deep a wound to even consider
especially on the day my phych, abandoned me... best to you all

Автор Ryannl Peckron ( назад)
I can't explain how much I relate to having believed the sun and the people
starting their day as I was ending my night how deeply I despised the sun
oh gosh the birds not the birds,so thank you for that, our experiences in
the mental wards are VERY different I live below the poverty line,the
acknowledged one, where most people do, And then I must admit I've stopped
your video when you began to speak the dam bathroom floor and positive
pregnancy test, I'm not nearly well enough to even have heard that, so I
can not continue your video.... I just found out the phych, I was actually
making progress with for medications and confidence in , has resigned,
another abandonment in my mind that is crushing and it's just being brushed
off, what the heck was I thinking a REAL knowledgeable Dr. would stay in a
clinic, those in poverty have very um different experiences with mental
health providers and help, so tho I am

I identify with your lessons learned at the mental hospital.

Автор Dora Beegens ( назад)
Unless you have lived and breathed this it is easy to brush this off as
boring , useless etc., but this is information for comfort which can be
just as useful as a how to video.. Being admitted into mental hospitals and
even seeing help is stigmatizing in our society, she is living proof that
you can seek help and you are not alone.

I've been out of the hospital for a month and a half now and I miss it
because just like she said, in there, there is no more hiding, I could just
be my broken self and it was okay. Every one else was broken too so we all
understood each other. Out here I just feel too overwhelmed to carry on.

Автор Dianne Whitehead ( назад)
I'll have to read the book, but something seems very inauthentic here. Like
a smallish teen thing was grown, in a theatric way, into a larger ordeal in
order to write a book and make a bunch of money. In my experience, people
with real mental disorders don't easily go on to have a husband and three
children and look great on TED and give a perfect speech, with very little
detail as to how she got over such a great mental disability, which is what
Anorexia, Bulimia, and truly believing you are "oily" and worthless is. I'm
very skeptical about the total sad truth of this story versus the
marketability and moneymaking truth of this story.

WOW!! Just reading these comments makes feel like I have finally found a

I've been in the psyc ward I think 4 times. It was always brought on by
alcohol- I also have agoraphobia ( in control) and depression(in control)
It was always like a peaceful place for me even though there were many
unstable patients. I had a pretty much good experience but also had a few
really crappy counselors. All in all I was able to see the positive in it..

What people with mental illness need, is a caring, non judgemental
environment where they feel safe and understood. So that they can freely
express themselves without worry of shame or being blamed. Instead of
treating people with mental illness as there illness , we as should be
treating them as people. Everything psychological is biological.
Medication, therapy and support will get you a long way. I would know, I
too have a mental illness. I have learned a lot from being inside
behavioural science units and the state hospital a few times. Psychotherapy
and getting me on the correct medication did wonders for me. I am now
living a healthy and happy life. Though at times it can be boring. I did
drop out of college last year out of fear of people finding out I had a
mental illness. I felt ashamed of it. After hearing several stories on Ted
Talks. I am feeling not alone in my struggle with it. I am a person not my
illness. It's a part of me not whom I am. I plan going bac to college as
soon as I am able to pay back the rest of the semester I did not finish.
Thanks for time and thank you for this video.

Автор Art Wood (Grave Intent) ( назад)
The speech was great, but... There are those of us who DO see the sunlight
and can only hope for the darkness. There are those of us who only know
what physical and mental pain is EVERY day with no where to run, no capes
to save us! There are those of us who DO the right thing regardless of how
we really feel just because we have to. There are those of us who only wish
for it all to end for peace to be ours and the pain to just stop, but it
won't! I commend her for her speech but that's just the perspective from
someone who have the ability to run and hide from their feelings and the
real world. What about those of us who can't?

I wanted to watch this because my friend recently admitted her self to a

made me more knowledgeable. Thank you for doing this

I've been to a mental hospital myself. There's a lot of mixed feelings but

Being naked about our truths....liberates others to open up as well. I love
how you say that addicts are not really liars , that they just tell their
truth in different ways

Автор kxtcx3iox2307 0 ( назад)
I think her delivery is refreshing and yes her story is sad but really
there are SO MANY ADDICTS and getting over yourself to become a productive
member of society which in turn brings happiness, is worthy of a TEDTALK?
These stories are all very similar, why her? What did she do?
1. use drugs alcohol sex gambling or anything other addictive substance,
I'll call it x
2. participate in X a lot, it feels good and you forget that you hate
3. realize X is expensive and your losing out on other things you want/like
because of it, STILL you don't care and you continue on in your
self-centered world because that is all you want to focus on. YOU
4. now that your a selfish fuck, you lose of basically everything and fall
to the ROCK BOTTOM with X
5. have spiritual awakening/ personal break through/ come to except using X
is making you pathetic and your wasting life
6. cry struggle talk to others about your sad life and listen to their sad
lifes and reminisce when X was good to you
7. people are tired of listening and you get bored of talking to you try
something new, like a job, or exercise, maybe a dabbling in religion books
simplified down to basic concept.
8 declare freedom from X and...

inspiring stuff and enjoy your life free from all of that🔝🔝🔝🔝

every addiction story sounds the same. I'm happy she got her life together
but I could care less about a other story like this. and to those who say
"you could have skipped it blah blah meh" to you I say fuck off, love and
light and it's on a Playlist on my tablet playing from the other room. I
had to grab it, curious to read the comments and felt compelled to write my
own despite the fact much opinion is meaningless. have a great evening
everyone 😁😁✌

I love your talk I guss what I meant to say is I needed to hear you today

A year ago at this time I was in psych ward(voluntarily). Spent 2 weeks
there. One has those key periods in their life. I've made realizations
since then and prior about myself. I'm indeed a sensitive and expressive
person. Most aren't. So at times people will criticize me/you for the ways
we simply ARE that aren't actually toxic/negative because deep down they're
envious to a degree they can't be like you/me at times..

and excellent topic.... I too knew something was wrong by the time I was 8
yrs old.... but, for some reason I just let it affect me negatively....
late for school and never do homework for instance. I think I just wanted
to blame my parents and make them sorry? Because I could! I must have been
very spoiled. ;) Well, who did I hurt besides myself?

Wow. I'm in recovery right now and can relate to this woman's story more

Incredibly powerful and evocative! We need to start teaching relevant
things in schools like how to live and discover happiness and fulfilment.
It is baffling that something so basic and integral to a successful
existence is not part of any school curriculum.

The only good lesson from a mental hospital is that the mental illness
system is a form of total oppression.

mental hospital rundown:
-don't be afraid of other patients.
-don't judge, everyone is there for a reason.
-you will make great friends, you will tell those people you will only know
for days or months more than you've ever told your very best friends.
-you'll be much more comfortable talking about it than your family will.
-every little remotely funny thing becomes a hilarious inside joke because
you want to find sunshine in anything.
-the mental hospital looks nothing like the movies, and a lot don't even
look like the rest of the hospital.
-you will either get your own room or share with other people. if you share
with other people you will probably have curtains.
-she's right - the jig is up. if you say you're fine and you're not, the
nurses are ninjas. they will know. they will tell the doctor you're in
-don't EVER try to harm yourself inpatient. what happens if you do is hell.
they either send you to a higher security facility or take away everything
in your room but your mattress. a nurse will be with you all. the. time.
-TALK. TO. THE. STAFF. that is what they are there for. they will stay up
until 3am talking to you. i promise they care.
-don't get cocky. the mental hospital isn't school, no one is afraid to
clap back and no one is afraid to tattle.
-remember, its really not that bad.

from a recovering former inpatient.
