I would like to note that the following post was inspired by I Swear written by the amazing Walker Karraa, founder of Stigmama.

f stigma 

Fuck Stigma

Fuck your glorified concept of normal

Fuck your ignorance and pity

Fuck the idea it is all in my head

Fuck just “getting over it”

Fuck Stigma

Fuck your ideas of what

Life sustaining medication is

Fuck you, I am a good mom

Fuck the loss of my fine motor skills

At least I am alive

Fuck Stigma

Fuck depression

swallowing me whole

Just think happy thoughts, Right?

This is not Neverland

Fuck Stigma

Fuck all the things

You think you know

about mental illness

It is all bullshit anyway

Fuck Stigma

Fuck the media

Who paint us out to be monsters

I am not here for

Your ratings

Fuck Stigma

Fuck societal standards

I am not less of a person

My feelings are real

My struggles are real

Fuck Stigma

It is time to shout it out to the world. Do you have something to say to stigma? Share it on twitter with the hashtag #fuckstigma Feel free to tag my username @thebipolarmama

  1. I loved reading this last night! I was on the elliptical as usual and I was shouting out “Yeah, Lauren!” & “Go Lauren!”

    I love “This is not Neverland”!!! Damn straight!

    You are so incredible to write such a powerful post, and I agree with every single word and F-bomb! (Aside from shit, it’s a massive personal favorite!)

    Thank you for speaking out. You have guts! A Stigmama to the max!
    Keep up the fabulous work!

  2. I read this on Julia’s blog and love it. I hope you take some time and read what I wrote. This subject is very close to my heart. I’ve been in the trenches for a very long time. So I know where you are coming from. See you soon I am now following you
    As always Sheldon
