judgement

  • Why do people judge/put down people suffering from mental illness?

    I ask this because if the rejection I've suffered from the friends and family I used to have. Even my husband turns on me, angrily saying I'm just lazy and spoiled because I left my job 6 months ago. When I try to explain he doesn't want to hear it. He says if I have the energy to "argue" with him, I must not be that depressed. Any time I try to express how I feel he acts like I'm doing something to hurt him. I have to say I'm feeling better for him not to be angry. I feel harshly judged. When I had been severely depressed in years past, my brothers treated me like dirt, smug and righteous. I stopped trying to make friends because if I can't get people who are suppose to love me to stop being angry, smug, self righteous, and cynical, how am I supposed to make acquaintances that would treat me with kindness? It's been so hard since I left my job. My husband belittles me abs if I don't act in a way he likes he refuses to buy things from the store that I like and tells me he is going to throw out the clothes I stopped wearing that are sitting on the laundry room floor. I don't understand it. When I was well I never judged other people. I liken it to how I took care of my mom when she was still alive and too old to help herself. I feel the hallmark of one's character is how you treat people who are helpless. Even if my mom said things I didn't like, I never punished her and held back being decent. Now when I'm in a helpless stare, I am not treated with kindness and understanding. Just made to feel less than I already do about myself. I don't want to be a burden, but I know I am by how I'm treated. My husband never acted this way when I was well and working. Its like he doesn't really believe I'm sick.
