Welcome to the Physical and Mental Health Thread! The primary purpose for this thread is to provide support, advice, and reassurance to those suffering with mental and physical health problems. If you feel worried, hopeless, or distressed about your health, finding a support group is one of the most important things you can do. You’re also welcome to share your history with mental or physical health problems, provide general coping input to those who feel distressed, and offer your own experiences with others’ problems.
An important thing to remember, however, is that no advice given in this thread should be regarded as professional advice. You can ask for advice or help to diagnose or cope with your health problems, but please, do not take anything as fact instead of consulting with a medical professional. If you have a serious problem, we can act as a support system, but your primary help should come from a medical professional. If there is an emergency or a sudden, serious situation, your first step should be to call 911 / a medical professional / an ambulance, not to post about it on Smogon.
A couple discussion topics to start you guys off:
- What coping techniques have helped you to accept and overcome your physical or mental health problems? Do you have a mantra/philosophy that helps you deal with and overcome these problems?
- At what point did you realize that you had a mental or physical health problem, and what actions did you take upon discovering it? Did you feel the most frightened or distressed when it started? Have you consulted a medical professional?
