This documentary does on a large scale what I've been trying to do all my life in my one man crusade. Growing up being diagnosed "hyper kinetic", and later ADHD, I also went through bouts of severe depression. I went from being drugged-down to be more "normal", to being sidelined in just about every way. I've never felt diseased, or ill. I've always felt different, but I always knew I was smarter than most of my classmates. I did my homework and have been trying to tell people that people like me also come with many gifts -- and I believe the gifts to be more numerous than the detriments. Until coming across Joey's amazing organization and work, I kinda always thought I was on my own in that regard.
There can be no more important topic to address, and Joey has made this his life passion. Stomping the stigma, and making brain dis-ease cool to talk about is crucial to allowing the vast majority of the population able to be real with themselves and everyone else. Joey is addressing something that everyone else was afraid to touch, most people try to hide, and everyone wants to be open about, and he does it masterfully.
"No Kidding! Me 2!" is a very good documentary, that gives us people with a "Mental Illnes" diagnosis a look at others who, through no fault of their own have also found themselves in similar circumstances.
Many of us, like Joe, have come to our diagnosis later in our lives, but have suffered for years without really knowing why...if we can really figure out why.
I am currently getting ready to graduate from my local day rehab program, am finishing up my internship for my certification to become a Peer Support Specialist and hope to take my state boards in August.
I hope that Joe and NKM2 can produce more outstanding material to show that we are all just people with a disease that needs to be addressed as what it is a disease that we certainly didn't ask for and certainly don't want to be stigmatized for.
Dorothy Hamill was a guest speaker here, and she told us that when she was diagnosed with breast cancer, that there wasn't enough that people could/would do for her. But when she was diagnosed with Major Depression, there was like no communication at all.
NKM2 keep up the good work on your end, and I will try to keep up on mine!!
