What is Helpful

Posted by okydoky on January 19, 2008, at 16:01:07

I once worked as a social worker in a rehabilitation facility. The woman I worked directly with was very nice. She had a pronounced limp (one leg shorter). One day she seemed angry and asked me why the people we worked with (depressives) wanted to be friends or socialize with people that were not depressed. She did not know I suffered with anorexia/bulimia and depression for most of my life. I was angry at her for thinking that way. I wanted to ask her how she would feel if she were encouraged, in fact almost forced, to socialize, marry etc. only with people who had pronounced limps? Of course I did not say anything.

I bring this up because it is my experience that the more "healthy" people I am socializing with the healthier I have become in my life and I have observed this in others. Of course we need people who understand for support. I just think after reading a lot of this board we should all keep this in mind.

I would be interested in what others think about this. I am not closed minded I hope anyway!
