Overview

If your depressed then you’ve heard them all.

“It’s all in your head!”

“Snap out of it!”

“Try to be more positive!”

“You need more faith/a hobby/a pet cat/a job/ a wife/a single life/a real life/a llama.”

Why do people make these idiotic and bizarre comments as soon as they discover you’re “mentally ill”? Are they insane? The short answer is yes! Totally 100% yes!
Blackmore’s Compendium of Stigma Disorders goes mad and attempts to catalogue and describe over forty different types of bonkers mental health stigma.

Inside you’ll discover if your agro gym buddy is really suffering from an Inappropriate Rocky Balboa Complex. You’ll learn if your suspicious boss actually has Ignorance Induced Paranoia. And you’ll be able to see if your nagging partner has in fact succumbed to Reactive Sainthood.

There’s only one way to find out the truth. Dive in now. Your world will never look the same again.

Meet the Author

Who am I? Well, I have been described as, or likened to: Napoleon Bonaparte, Napoleon Dynamite, Jesus, Hitler, a goat, a character called “the Fool” (a cross between Buddha, Capt Jack Sparrow, and a drag queen as far as I can tell), a dark horse, a small aggressive parrot, a free spirit, a genuine gentleman, a dick, a woman, a grey man (the guy who looks like a nobody but actually has an AK47 in his pants), a teetotaller, a drunk, an emo, a realist, some Arab guy, an Italian, a Frenchman, an effing foreigner, a true patriot, that dude from Evermore, a serial killer, your friend whose name I do not share and have never met (I don’t know you okay so stop treating me like you do, it's creepy, who are you?), a homeless man, a senile Jedi knight, a Trojan (either the horse, the virus, the people who got slaughtered by the Greeks, a condom, or a crazy mofo battler. I don’t really know), a large purple safety mascot, a fast bastard, a cheap bastard, a bastard, an intellectual sponge, an actual sponge, funny (as in strange funny), funny (as in ha ha funny), cute, creepy, and impressive. If you can make any sense of this then you’re doing better than me.
