Robin Hobb/Megan Lindholm (same person) on mental health and medication.

[personal profile] meganbmoore summarizes:

Short version: Taking medication for mental illness, neurological disorders, or anything that may result in a person not being "normal" mentally means that the are stifling your creativity and being untrue to your genetic self.

This is of course the same Robin Hobb who really hates fanfic.

I.. I really don't have words.

My periods of non-functionality have made me very aware of how lucky I am that most of the time I can perform pretty well without drugs. I do have a deep-rooted dislike of drugs, but that's a very personal hang-up based on various things in my life that one day I would really like to get over.

The sheer amount of privilege backing that statement is incredible. Being forgetful and slightly moody =/= manic depression. SHUT UP, ROBIN HOBB.
