About this submission

I have autism, anxiety, and borderline personality disorder. I have also had severe depression in the past, so I get treated by people who have never experienced mental illness in their lives in two ways. They either ignore it or treat you like you’re insane. Neither way works. No matter what mental condition you have or a lack of one, we have more in common than you think. I hope that one day more people will come to understand this.
