Hi! I like running, hockey, soccer, and am trying to stay fit while in college. You can read more on my about me page if you want to.
parenting tip: talk to your kids about mental illness. tell them they might have a hard time. tell them they can ask for therapy and medication. tell them they aren’t alone. tell them if your family has a history of mental illnesses and which ones. just fucking talk to your kids and be there for them.
Yes please please do this it could save a lot of suffering
Please do this, I only found out after I started having severe panic attacks that my pediatrician and mom had been suspecting for 5 years that I had mild anxiety issues. Also, they apparently discussed putting me on medication for it about 4 years prior to my sever panic attacks. If they had told me these things and included me in the conversations I would have felt more comfortable approaching them before it got to the point that I could not talk to people without having panic attacks.
