Pričanje o mentalnim bolestima i dalje je veliki tabu. Društvene mreže ovaj su puta odigrale pozitivnu ulogu da bi pokazale kako izgleda prava borba s nekime tko pati od mentalne bolesti i kako malo šminke može zapravo učiniti mnogo
Vizažistica Wayne Kash na svoj je Instagram profil objavila fotografiju svoje klijentice Troi prije i nakon što ju je našminkala. Dok je prije Troi imala masnicu ispod oka, šminka je sve to prekrila, a nakon negativnih komentara, odlučila je progovoriti o pravom razlogu svojeg izgleda.
Mentalne bolesti su stvarne
Unless you live or have lived in a house with a mentally ill person, you wouldn't understand this picture nor my injury. Mental Illnesses & Mental Disorders ARE REAL! Unfortunately, my brother suffers from a severe mental illness called Schizoaffective Disorder (google it) and I just so happened to be in the way when he flipped out. My brother have never put his hands on me before, so of course I was caught off guard.. And this happened right before my birthday.. I cried for two days and cancelled all my birthday plans. It took my mom @famikalouise and my friends @venerated_ & Money to lift my spirits. I felt ugly. I was embarrassed, I was hurt, and I knew the first thing people was going to think was that I got abused or that I got beat up. I just wanted to feel beautiful for my 21st birthday and @thee.waynekash made that happen for me. Thank you so much for that. THIS IS NOT FROM BOXING. #TroiNation
Mnogi su mislili kako se radi o ozljedi od boksa, s obzirom da se Troi time bavi, no istina je nešto drugačija. Modricu je prouzročio njezin brat, koji boluje od šizofrenije.
“Osim, ako ne živite ili niste živjeli s nekime tko boluje od mentalne bolesti nećete razumjeti ovu fotografiju ili moju ozljedu. Mentalne bolesti i mentalni poremećaji su stvarni! Nažalost, moj brat ima šizofreniju i ja sam mu se samo pronašla na putu kada je imao jednu od svojih epizoda. Brat nikada ranije nije podigao ruku na mene pa sam naravno ostala zatečena. A ovo se dogodilo taman prije mog rođendana. Plakala sam dva dana i otkazala sve planove. Mama i prijatelji su me morali oraspoložiti.
Osjećala sam se ružno. Bila sam povrijeđena, osramoćena i znala sam da će ljudi prvo pomisliti kako me doma netko zlostavlja ili da sam pretučena. Samo sam se htjela osjećati lijepo na svoj 21. rođendan, a Wayne mi je stvarno pomogla. Hvala ti puno na tome. Ovo nije od boksa.”
O mentalnim bolestima treba razgovarati, jer one su stvarne. Iako je Troi bilo teško otvoriti se, svojom je objavom izazvala brojne reakcije.
#Day2 with my beautiful, BRAVE, and spectacular client @thereal_troi 😍😍😍❤️ The other day before she came in she told me not be shocked because she was a fighter and she had a bruise. When she came in she had an amazingly kind spirit and I asked her if we could take some before photographs because I knew I would be able to cover the bruise. She agreed and she also let me decide on the look. We both knew the before and after picture would be great for advertisement. We never imagined the image would go viral. After receiving so many harsh and negative comments from internet TROLLS @thereal_troi decided to disclose where the bruise actually came from. Her brother who suffers from mental illness had an episode and she was accidentally injured. She never lied to me. She is a fighter, a boxer. There are pictures on her page. I just assumed that that's where the scar came from. I can't imagine the amount of bravery it must have taken for her to disclose the real story behind her bruise. We don't take mental illness serious, especially in the African American community. So I commend her for her bravery and I stand with her as she continues on living a healthy and happy life. Your negative comments are ignored and her spirit isn't broken by the ignorance. She wanted to be beautiful for her birthday despite what she'd been through. Black women are the strongest creatures on this planet. So if you're going to say anything, talk about the fact that she's STILL STANDING AND STILL SMILING. Look at that smile, there's God in it! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ #quithating
