Torry I LOVE this! I’m so happy that you shared it! I am so happy that celebrities are using their platforms to break stigma and spread awareness. I think it’s so so important. I recently was stigmatized by a psychiatrist, and I found it to be so shocking (in addition to being embarrassing, frustrating, and confusing)- particularly because it was relating to my self harm scars. I am used to catching people look at my arms, and I don’t (usually) find it offensive, because I don’t know what people are thinking, and I’m sure most of it is not negative. But having celebrities reach out, express loving kindness to themselves and others, and bringing light to something that affects all of us, yet we feel unable to talk about it so great.
