#mentalhealth_awareness_month: The first thing I’d change about this is the naming: It’s not about the mind or mental healh – it’s about emotional injuries and their consequences for a person. Call it “emotional diseases” or “emotional injuries” or whatever else. I don’t think, my mind was ever impaired in significant ways. When emotional distress is taken to the extreme, this might bring about conditions, where a person is no longer able to function in a consistent manner, agreed. Still: That’s emotional distress and a lot of neo-cortex’ activity taken hostage or circumvented from it. All of that is normal healthy behaviour and a result of how human beings are “wired”.
