The true role of diagnoses

Day 29: What are a few of your goals regarding your mental health.
     I think my goals are common to anyone experiencing mental illness.  I do not seek a cure because that is beyond current medical science and human capabilities.  Instead I seek to be able to live with my conditions with their symptoms managed to enable me an acceptable quality of life.  I would like my own strengths to be more involved in that than medication but like all things that takes time.
     I would like to live in a society that appreciates that people with mental illnesses can still function and fully contribute.  A society that assists with that objective rather than working against it.  I am not asking for special favours, I don’t need them, but a cessation of assumption would definitely help.  Get to know me, don’t assume that you already do because of diagnoses that I may have.
