Rehab Addict, Stigmatizer

This morning, the host of a show I love tweeted this:

Happiness is a choice. just putting that out as a reminder today.

And I died a little inside.

Because I’m sure she meant it as a way to lift people up.  Instead it tore me down.  And I’m sure it wounded every one of her followers that struggles with Depression.

Because it’s not a choice for them.  
For them, it’s a disease. 
This is the stigma of mental illness.
