Considering how prevalent mental illness is, why do so few bloggers talk about it?

The aim of this blog is to write about my experience with mental illness, developments in my life as well as issues in the field of mental health all the while keeping a feminist framework.

I hope you can take something from this blog, whatever that may be.

Movies that make me question my sanity #3

Vanilla Sky

This movie is the reason why I stopped watching movies that make you question your sanity. This movie really freaked me out! I watched it with my grade 12 boyfriend one night. He fell asleep and I ended up watching most of it by myself. The ending freaked me out and I tried to wake him up just to regroup (you know, like watching cartoons after a horror movie?) and he wouldnt wake up (he would complain about me waking him up and roll over). So here I am, alone with my thoughts, thinking "is this world real? am I imagining all this..." didnt sleep well thats for sure!

Even just looking at the poster gives me the heebs (as in heeby jeebies). but who knows, maybe that just tom cruise...

  1. It's definitely Tom Cruise. He has given me the creeps ever since he dismissed postpartum depression and mental illness on the talk/news shows.
    Congrats on making it to this point in Blogathon! I like your blog alot! And love your cause as well.

  2. Ah thanks Terre! Yeah he's a pretty big jerk. Funnily enough my abnormal psych text book actually included a picture of him in their depression section discussing how when people are use to being loved and adored and then lose this attention they can be moved to depression. I thought it was such a good burn to include his picture! haha
