CMA Shows Canadians Stigmatize Mental Health

August 18, 2008 at 1:46 pm 4 comments

 A recent Canadian Medical Association poll suggests most Canadians stigmatize mental health.   Is it any wonder???  The Oligarchy chose the word ‘hallucination’ to tag what indigenous peoples call vision.  What once was healthy and helpful became ‘bad’…they only wanted the priests to have that gift.   But check out STEVE….how will he handle this talking dog next to him?

Steve: ok, like you’re talking so I must be dreaming.  Maybe I’ve been working too hard.  I’m not mentally ill though, that’s for losers.  Um, like, did William Lyon Mackenzie King send you here?

Doggawd:  What do you think, Steve?

Steve:  I think maybe Tom Flanagan is paying a practical joke on me.  Tom, is that you in a dog suit?

Doggawd:  Wake up buster.  Why can’t you accept that I’m a real dog?

Steve: Because I only listen to cats.   Talking with cats is not being mentally ill.

Doggawd: Man oh man you missed the boat on that one!  Who’s your medicine person?

Steve: A regular doctor, why would I go to a quack?

Dawggawd: Maybe you are….DUCK!  Haha, sorry, bad joke.

Steve:  Nothing’s wrong with me that a good bandaid wouldn’t fix.

Doggawd:  Uh huh.  Heard that a million times.  Why don’t you try listening to your own heart?

Steve: Now I really know that dogs are nuts.   It’s the doc’s job to listen to my heart.

Doggawd:  No.  The system, doctors and your parents shut down the ability for you to listen to your heart.  Somehow you took it upon yourself to be GOD….you’re going to get a crack for that.  Start to listen, beyond the tic toc tic toc.

Steve: SECURITY! Quick, there’s a mentally ill dog by me.   Arrest and detain at the nearest psyche ward!

Doggawd: Woof.

    “I only listen to cats.”

    That cracked me up.

    What can I say about this, other than I am not surprised mental illness is so stigmatized? That alone causes as many issues as the illnesses themselves…

    coyote….keeeeriste! even in my own family i’ve had to do so much educating…after the psyche ward they figured i was STUPID, not just yet another bipolar having a reaction to all the stress around me. as for my ex, in the years since i was diagnosed he read two books….two books and one was an account of wht it’s like to be bipolar (and she was one of the sexually promiscious ones).

    so he had NO IDEA and refused to learn more but based opinion on – well – nothing! that is called ignorance and i called him on it more then once. to be fair to him he basically put himself in denial as couldn’t cope with the reality……..yet the reality wouldn’t have been that bad had he educated himself.

    ahhhhhhh!!!!!!!!

    I think that poll is one of the most depressing things I have ever read. I can’t believe so many Canadians are so ignorant and hardhearted. As I wrote in a post on the subject it does explain why so many Canadians are so callous about homeless people. Their bastard stupidity knows no bounds…

    simon, unfortunetly from my experience , t’is true t’is true. facilities are still draconian, and family and friends can be my worst enemies…..even though they believe themselves to be ‘elevated’ , liberal (in societal context) , or whatever , when it comes down to the crunch i’m best off NOT speaking with the majority of my family or friends.

    it’s really sad…it makes life lonely and difficult because people project onto you how they would be if ‘they were insane’….their insecurity stems from holding on to the system, no matter how free and ‘above it’ they feel they are. so, critics, sit down and don’t take a bow because in the end you probably haven’t crossed that line , broken through despite what you may say.

    there’s very few who can walk their talk.
