Damaged goods

I came upon the Bipolar Wellness Writer blog (on my Blogroll, actually) and read a quote that really stuck out to me. I often feel this way:

I once wrote an essay called The Throwaway People about me and my mother. I tore it up years ago but my point was that in our society, old people and people who are labeled mentally ill are throwaways. People feel they can dismiss us because we are damaged.

I can’t say much more than that.

    was random surfing to find the title of a quote book (eventually i found it! “A Word from the Wise” compiled by Rosemarie Jarski) when i chanced upon your site.
    Thanks, i had many uplifting moments reading through the quotes you’ve collected (:
