What to expect when accommodating for a mental illness

April 15, 2019

What does accommodating for a mental illness mean?

 

Lots of myths surround this one so let me clear some up for you:

 

It does NOT mean:
You should be coddled
You can be unreliable
You can cry wolf whenever you feel off
You are helpless 
Your employer owes you 
You don’t need to communicate
You can have temper tantrums and claim the world is against you
Or act like a child

 

It DOES mean:
You can ask people to be gentle with you
You can inform your employer what your mental illness may look like 
And what they could expect when you’re not well
It means you have extra responsibility to take care of your mental health
To keep you and your life moving in the direction you want
It means if you are feeling off you need to communicate that to the people who expect things from you 
Like your boss
Partner 
Family 
Just a “hey I’m not myself today”
To teach people how you need to be treated.
It means you get help.


And it means sometimes you don’t do these things because it’s too difficult - but you strive to.

It means you are a human with an illness like diabetes, crohns or colitis - like migraines. With something that needs understanding and support - but the world doesn’t stop. Not for you, not for me.


Learn how to communicate - learn how to manage your illness -through the right combination of medication/ exercise or therapy. Through what your doctor and you work out. 


You CAN live a fulfilled life.
