I understand that if you're still trapped in all the horrific events of your past that what I've just said seems like I'm being flippant, dismissive and even blaming you for your situation.
I promise that is not my intention.
It is just something I feel the medical professionals, mental health professionals and researchers are very poor at communicating.
I learned that some mental health disorders could never be cured.
I learned that if someone had struggled for years, the best they could hope for was survival.
I learned that if someone had been through a truly horrific experience then this would stay with them for life, no matter what treatment was used.
It's why medication is so relied upon.
