Disability with mental health TW abuse

I fight to tell the tale, I suffer badly due to chronic pain which makes me poorly and unwell the most. I also suffer with BPD and other mental health issues due to abuse. 
I am wondering, is it normal to have mental health with a disability? or do others not experience the same as me? I find it hard waking up in a happy mood when I can't do much but I try to be as happy as i can even when i don't want to be but what can i do? try get past this tough time i suppose. Ellie  
It has made me worse after getting abused and taken the mick after i failed to take a maths exam when i tried my hardest but got bullied from other people. 
not saying I'm standing up to the bullies but i am making my voice be heard to help others in the same situation. we shouldn't have to go through hate and it's annoying but i am trying. 
we should be like other humans we should be cared for the same we should have equal rights even with a disability we shouldn't be treated differently as it's not called for and that isn't how society is like, we are the same but we have a few crashes along the way we are equal to be respected not treated like rubbish as that's not what we deserve as we are beautiful as anyone else in this world. we aren't any different your important and everyone is.

if your finding life tricky sending you hugs

    Hi @ellieflower3 :) Thanks for sharing your experiences with us. 

    Many people with other conditions also experience mental health problems, so you're definitely not the only one.

    You're right that disabled people shouldn't have to experience inequality. It's good to hear that you're passionate about this! 

    Are you receiving any support for your mental health at the moment? 

    You've also mentioned having experienced abuse. I'm sorry that you went though this. Are you out of that situation now? Have you spoken to a professional about the abuse you experienced?

    I'm sorry they made you feel this way. They shouldn't have done. Have you ever tried speaking to an abuse charity about what happened? They can sometimes be more understanding.
