Maybe they think that just because you take care of yourself and socialize, you're not actually depressed.

NBC

Perhaps your friend who doesn't have OCD calls themselves "OCD" just because they like to keep things organized.

Fox

Maybe people have disrespected you or hinted that you were weak for not being able to break out of a substance addiction.

AMC

If you have a mental illness, we want to know some of the ignorant comments you've heard from people who don't have one. We also want to know why they were wrong. The best responses will be featured in a BuzzFeed Community post or video.
