Mental health: you can’t dye your hair red!

30 Nov

Here’s a Storify story I put together with my tweets and other tweeps’ hilarious responses when I started off by tweeting:

.

“Downsides of having a mental health diagnosis: you can’t dye your hair red or be grumpy & opinionated without it being considered a symptom.”

.

It’s a serious point: everything is considered a symptom and we can even start needlessly pathologising our own ordinary everyday experience once we’ve had a diagnosis. Well, there’s more to life than a mental health diagnosis.

Anyway, hope you enjoy the tweets!
