Depressed Brain 🧠 VS Healthy Brain 🧠

🌻 Sophie’s World 🌎

STOP πŸ›‘ THE STIGMA OF MENTAL ILLNESS.

So … in 2014 after experiencing several loses, I fell into a deep, severe depression episode. I also got suicidal thoughts. I went to a doctor and told him about it, and this is what he told me, β€œBut you don’t look suicidal to me ?! Be positive, be grateful and think happy thoughts. It’s all in your head.”. πŸ˜‘ πŸ™„

You know what, in a way, there’s truth in it. Depression, anxiety , suicidal thoughts πŸ’­ are all symptoms of a sick brain πŸ€• 🧠.

And yes, it is true that our brain 🧠 is located inside our head 😊.

I found this PET scan picture, and I want to share it with you guys.

PLEASE DON’T GET DISCOURAGED OR ASHAMED IF YOU HAVE A MENTAL ILLNESS.

MENTAL ILLNESS/BRAIN DISORDERS ARE THE SICKNESS OF THE BRAIN 🧠. AND THE BRAIN IS AN ORGAN IN HUMAN’S BODY, AN JUST LIKE ANY OTHER ORGANS, BRAIN 🧠 CAN GET SICK TOO.

Stop πŸ›‘ the stigma of mental illness.

Thank you ☺️ for joining me on this Page. ❀️- 🌻 Sophie
