I'll apologise now if my language gets a bit colourful in this rant... I have realised that so many people are uneducated about mental illness - depression and suicide attempts to be precise. I've recently witnessed someone slagging off someone else because of their failed attempt - calling them attention seeking and such. Well, I decided I wasn't gonna stand for this and got involved, saying something along the lines of "try to understand what this person is actually going through before you make judgement like that". So, they turned around and said "awwwwww emos unite" Now, it may just be me, but I took serious offence to this statement. I for one do not consider myself emo, or anything similar. Calling people with mental illness and things emos is pathetic, some people will attempt suicide and self harm for attention whereas others feel it is the only way out. I just turned around and said "emos unite? Wow, you're well educated aren't you...? Prick." Is it just me this pisses off or does it do that to other people to? I for one hate being lumped into a catagory i'm not part of just for my behaviour and i'm sure others do too. Sorry for the ranting, this just highly pissed me off.
