I suppose it has become common knowledge that I do have mental health issues. Despite that it doesn't make me a rubbish person just someone what struggles a bit . I find myself asking myself over and over again why I feel like everyone in my family thinks I'm always doing something wrong or I'm thinking wrongly about stuff.??????????????????. The mind boggles at times .

    Despite all this stuff we read and hear that society has become more aware and accepting and understanding of people with mh issues it has not! Same goes for neurodiversity too. And unfortunately that can be true of family members also. 
    I have no family now.
    But a distant cousin who I've only ever met twice told the PIP tribunal I should be in a home. 
    Only time I've rung the Samaritans. 
    We are blessed to have this group at Scope where our voice can be heard in our society.

    In my mind I have this idea for the future where they will build maybe six small towns across the country where only neurodiverse people are allowed to live and work.
    A society run for us and by us!
    It would solve a heap of problems including in the mental health area.
    Dream on........

    I know you struggle with mental health quite a bit @Strawberry1, but can I just say your posts in this community often bring a smile to my face. You said in another thread that you're concerned about how self-centred you are. Yet so often I see you saying such nice things to other people, making sure they know how highly you think of them.

    You're a wonderful person.

    About family, it is difficult. Perceptions on mental health and neurodiversity are changing but slowly, and mostly in the younger generation. Scope has a 10 year strategy where one of the goals is to change prejudices and negative ideas about disabled people, I hope we succeed in that strategy.
    They/Them, however they are no wrong pronouns with me so whatever you feel most comfortable with
