Arrow Something I need to get off my chest

I just HAD to write this down and I thought this would be the place that would understand.
I am SOOOOOO tired of explaining myself and my illness to people.
There is NO WAY in this world that anyone would EVER tell a person with cancer or someone paralyzed in a wheel chair, just snap out of it, pray and read your bible and things will get better. So WHY, do they insist on telling people who suffer from mental illness, oh it's just in your head, just snap out of it, oh that's just of the devil, read your bible and pray and you'll be ok?
I do pray every day, and read my bible, but I can't snap out of it....I wouldn't know how to snap out of it. I have an illness, I don't WANT to have this, but I do. If one more person tells me to just snap out of it, I'm going to snap alright.....Grrrrrrr
I think it's because it's an illness that you can't see, like you can see if someone is in a wheel chair, the the effects of someone who has cancer, but you can't see mental illness, so if they can't see it, then it must not be there.....right?
Ok, I got that off my chest Now I feel ALL better
