What if we treated physical illness like mental illness?

  

Seems pretty cruel no? I’m glad that HuffPost put out this simple article. Robot hugs comics really helps you realize how silly it is to speak to someone with both mental illness and physical illness without any empathy or understanding. The same way a cancer patient can’t just deal with their symptoms or disease or just heal themselves, a person with mental illness can’t either. It takes a lot of time, effort, learning and understanding. It can take many doctors visits, therapist visits to finally come to terms with mental illness. 

Below is the original article I found online about the comic.
