2012 Mental Health Humor - embrace our differences free range chickens eggs to the third power Cube Algebra- by Chato Stewart 150Different Is Not a Four Letter Word!

The true definition of the word MENTAL is: “an action performed by or existing in the mind: mental arithmetic; a mental note. Or pertaining to intellectuals or intellectual activity.” It’s only when it’s used as a noun or an adjective that the connotation of “mental” becomes stigmatic.

Nowadays, the word mental itself is used as a descriptive adjective to identify someone different than normal. (What is “normal” anyway?) We are all different. It doesn’t matter what our differences are. The fact is not even Siamese twins are equal in every way. Being different is not a four letter word!

Learn To Embrace Our Differences

The way I live and how I cope with my “mental ability” is different than how you may cope with your specialty of the mind. Let’s not reject everything because it doesn’t fit the norm; let’s embrace our differences. The one common thread we may have is living with a mental illness.

That’s the only common thread because how each one of us works toward recovery in our own way is based on our own different set of circumstances. By now you know there is no such thing as one-size fits all when it comes to mental disorders such as Bipolar Disorder, Depression or Schizophrenia. There is even a diagnostic abbreviation that helps us to understand that we all don’t fit in the same circle, square or triangle of mental illness. That diagnostic abbreviation is NOS or Not Otherwise Specified – no really, it’s a true diagnostic description. {See: Psychotic Disorder Not Otherwise Specified (NOS)}

So what have we learned? Simply, we should not run away from our differences even when our differences are not otherwise specified!

This brings me to today’s cartoon. It is the third of five cartoons I’ve drawn in the Gary Larson cartoon-style. This one is a complete original, but includes a chicken and a farmer. Gary Larson had tons of cartoons that incorporated the scenario of a farm animal like a cow or chicken or just the farmer or all three. It leads me to think he may have grown up on a farm, but I’m not sure.  Nonetheless, in today’s cartoon we will learn to embrace a little algebra and to embrace everyone’s differences.
