The Mental Health Pandemic

No matter where I look or go, the status quo is constant. Mental health, happiness scales, depression and anxiety are everywhere these days. Not only are more being convinced that they are unstable in the smallest of measurements, but more and more are being forced to conform to the social status of therapy. The biggest indicator that I can decipher is perpetual sickness. A symptom that never goes away, permanently, a symptom that more often than not is shifted constantly.

I believe that more and more, are becoming “sick” since honesty rarely occurs. I don’t mean lying per se, but our lives depend on our ability to blend in and comply. People are not allowed to speak their mind in their day to day lives. Too much is on the line, their job, their way of life and their family. We are maxed out on credit. We desperately need our jobs to survive. We send our children to school, so we can work to provide.

We lack the flexibility to nurture ourselves and our loved ones, since we cannot lose our jobs. The sickness comes from knowing and understanding the narrow margin of error we walk everyday. We cannot speak openly and freely, since our livelihood depends on our ability to be mediocre.

I will say this, mental health for the majority in my mind, is a total scam. Mental health has replaced the coveted family dinner and looking to one’s elders for advice. With that being said, some do need it, yet few truly benefit. How many others would feel relieved to simply speak their mind, to be open and honest when confronted?

The biggest scare for me is not only health records, but the ability for medical professionals to limit one’s rights, though notes and medication alone. Medical records are looked upon as evidence without context in all courts of law. The “professional opinion” has hurt more than it has ever helped.

      LOL, it’s not that I do not like therapists and psychiatrists, it just all seems too convenient. These “sicknesses” that people are diagnosed with today seem very pointed and convenient. If everyone wasn’t so ready to “keep up with the Jones’s” everyone would be that much freer to express themselves fully and openly. The manifestation of not being able to speak one’s mind, I believe creates this debacle by itself.

      It’s all about jobs and making money. Convince people that they have “problems” then they will pay you to fix those problems. All the money that is spent on mental health only seems to exasperate the “issues”.

      Like the AIDS “pandemic” of the 1980s and 1990s, everyone was freaking out. All you had to do was not shoot up drugs and abstain from casual sex, and you were practically immune. Yet all of the money and propaganda were aimed at convincing everyone that they are at risk.

      Never forget, everything revolves around money, power and influence. Look at the Catholic Church and what they have done for centuries. The Catholic Church is the perfect example of this.

      1. Haha, money, money, money. Yeah, the fear of being disapproved prevents people from truly expressing themselves. I Don’t know where you live, but here in France I see it from an early age, in the way children are raised to be “dead” Inside. “Don’t talk too much, Don’t be too brilliant, Don’t be too enthusiastic, Don’t do this, Don’t do that, Don’t Don’t Don’t”, and people grow up Learning how to be the minimum of what they can be, not allowing themselves to shine and be bright, or they do it Under cover. There’s Always somebody who will tell you “you’re too much of this and that”. It takes a lot of courage to be yourself today, and dare go against the main Stream. There’s no mystery in the amount of antidepressants people take in our modern societies. At least that’s my personal analysis, it’s Worth what it’s Worth.

          You got a good head on your shoulders. Do what you can afford, if not, don’t complain. It’s all self induced.

  1. Boy, you have been on a ROLL, lately. Finger on da pulse, I say!

    “Sick with something” is the new normal. “They” want is tagged, bagged and controlled. And, the crazy thing is, we “self-police”…ourselves & each other. There is a reason why Marines are called “jarheads”.

    I can tell you from personal experience that birth control pills are terrible (deadly) and antidepressants don’t work.

    I can’t help but wonder if we all wouldn’t be better off if this structure we are stuck in just collapsed. It would be difficult at first but, we need to re-learn how to really LIVE.

    Just my four cents…🤔

      And for some reason, the past is always brought up as if I had something to do with it. And they are always complaining about how they cannot get over the past!!! Parallels are everywhere!

      Totally over-diagnosed, a way to subdue the masses. Now they even promote women getting drunk on wine and marijuana to the masses. Numbing the population for easier control.
