Question from fanbutthisistoomuch

sometimes a stigma is too much alone. Why tell the world of her mental illness if not only for selfish tit-for-tat self-protection reasons?! That only puts more of a burden on an ill child now in a fishbowl. COME ON! That is not love. Same for others’ leaning disabilities- Is it necessary to let others know so we respect your motherhood more!?!?
