Is it me or have others witness that people stick up for or feel empathy towards someone with a drug problem more so than with mental illness
I made mention to someone to not trust a specific individual that they let into their home because hes a drug addict and I known him personally and know for a fact that he steals and scopes out homes. the person I was talking to, stuck up for him and showed him empathy and everything.
why is their empathy for drug addiction which is a choice but not for someone like me struggling with depression. im told im not trying hard enough...well is a drug addict trying?
I don't know...my stupid rant for the day
