I work in a mental health ofice and it's orientation today. I've already taken orientation, and they are teaching about stigma and recovery, and about to show a video that I was in on recovery. I walked into the room to refill my coffee and the people in the class (mental health workers) were talking about "them" and how "they" are and ned to be treated... dumb us "them" condescending crap..you know? And my co-worker "what do you think" about something he had been talking about and said "Steff what do you think?" so I just smiled and said "watch out their everywhere, even where you work, and you might not even know", and I walked out. Now the recovery video of me being interviewed with other people with mental illnesses who are not ashamed is playing and they all have to walk right by my desk to leave. Just made me feel a little good? bad? I don't know?
