Would you publicize your Disease?

Social Media haunts all celebrities.

When celebrities come out honestly with what bothers them; the media is not at peace.

Lately, Catherine Zeta Jones came out saying that she is suffering from Bipolar Disorder.

Case Rested...right?

Wrong!

Media still keeps pushing all sorts of buttons on this celebrity who is trying hard to keep her poise especially with a mental disorder to fight.

She was brave enough to come out, and declare what bothers her. It was not out of sympathy, but to create awareness in the public, and also to state that everyone has problems.

My 2 cents
We all have our own set of problems but, many of us prefer to hide it. Are you one of them?

 She was bold enough to come out with it. We have to learn to respect that, and give her space for recovery.


Mantra for today: Problems come in everybody's life. It is how we deal with it; is the challenge.

I've written hubs on cancer and how I dealt with it in hopes to help others.

As you know, I am completely out there! It is the only way to truly raise awareness. Even if it hurts.

Yeah...the drawbacks of being famous: people know way too much about you. Good mantra, Ruchira. :)

Oh no, shame. I love Catherine Zeta Jones, I think she is a brilliant actress and stunning. I had no idea. I think it's a good idea to share it in hopes that it can help others. She is very brave for doing that and I admire her.

Love your Mantra, and totally agree with you.. As one who suffered a Nervous breakdown in the 90's I empathise with her and all those who have the courage in 'coming-out' and bringing awareness to such illnesses..
Wishing you a wonderful Weekend Ruchira... ~Sue Dreamwalker

Thank you all for your outspoken comments.

I suffer from ARthritis and try each day to figure out how to make life easy for my joints...no shame in that..since it is just the physical aspect of it. It is the soul that matters...how clean that is.

Happy Friday:)

I obviously don't hide anything. LOL I have opened my wounds for all to look at. If they want to judge me then they are very tiny people who have no compassion in their hearts.
