Effective Non-Disclosure LOL by Living Well on Mon Jul 18, 2011 5:14 am
Well I went to my friends place and had a lovely time. Life never ceases to amaze me with what it throws up. Instead of my friend grilling me (like I thought she was going to do), she spoke about her daughter's battle with depression and how it's all in her head! I was like .
I made the decision to keep my mouth shut about my health and chose not to defend her daughter's journey. I didn't feel strong enough for my diagnosis to be invalidated and I had none of the facts regarding her daughter's illness or experiences. I think it is ironic that the younger woman with mental health issues has shied away from a friendship with me - and her mother who is so averse to mental health issues has warmed to me. Life is soooo full of irony!!
