Mental health is more important than it's given credit for, but it's not more important than everything else.

Agreed, but most people can manage mental illness for longer than they can survive without food, water, shelter, etc. Mental illness claims many lives, for sure, and many many more people live long lives with it.

it's easy to see your arm bleeding but mental illness is not actually a physical object to identify …in this way metal health problems are all powerful and corrupt a well balanced human machine.. your brain is so amazing that it automatically forces you to eat... with mental illness you can die of hunger next to a pile of food …

...there are invisible physical illnesses too. You can't see diabetes or cancer or life-threatening food allergies or fibromyalgia or countless other physical maladies.

Comparing extremes, like a debilitating eating disorder and a paper cut, will obviously "prove" your point.

Mental health...Isn't that a tune by Quiet Riot.

You see, I have this perception that you are fabricating stories to allure individuals into feeling sympathy for you which I see as a disgusting act of manipulation. And for that I demand an apology.
