Fill out this form on Credo to send your rep a form to repeal his/her own health insurance.
Who would have the audacity to vote for repealing affordable health care for 32 million Americans while gladly accepting generous, federally subsidized insurance for themselves? 237 congressional health care hypocrites!
Call out this hypocrisy by sending your Representative who voted for repeal the actual form to cancel his/her own federal insurance - we’ll send a fax for you right now! (If your Rep. voted against repeal, or has opted out of federal benefits, we’ll send your message to Republican leadership.)
this is a moving account of what it is really like to live with and love someone with severe mental illness. the stigma is still far too great in this country. mental illness can range from mild to severe, and no matter what it is - depression, schizophrenia, borderline personality disorder, social anxiety - it is not something that a person should be vilified or blamed for. it is also not something that they can wish (or pray) away, just “get over”, or erase with positive thinking.
if you are not able to understand what it is like to live with mental illness, either that of a loved one or something that you experience yourself, you are lucky. that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t educate yourself about it, and that people who do deal with it don’t deserve understanding, respect, and empathy.

Stew lost his job because he couldn’t work. He had six months of disability, and during that time we had insurance through Cobra. He had a psychiatrist, a therapist and many meds. Some made him sleepy, some made him angry, mostly they made him dull and foggy, and he became a ghost of himself. He saw things that weren’t there. He heard voices that weren’t there. He struggled with knowing what was real and what was not.
The diagnoses changed, he didn’t fit into a category. And then the disability and the health insurance ran out.
