It certainly has been a humbling experience for me. €There is something in sickness that breaks down the pride of manhood.” —Charles Dickens. Illness is the night-side of life, a more onerous citizenship. €Susan Sontag, Illness as Metaphor, 1977. "The Role of Bodily Illness in the Mental Life of Children.". I think I have stated very convincingly why. Everyone who is born holds dual citizenship, in the kingdom of the well and the kingdom of the sick. In Susan Sontag's Illness as Metaphor, she argues that misusing the language that describes illness only furthers feelings of shame in patients. Experiences and life circumstances. My only point is that psychiatry is not a scientific endeavor and that “mental illness” remains a metaphor that lacks scientific validity. What's fascinating about injuries is that they're a symbol for both strength and weakness, a duality, “like all really successful metaphors,” as Susan Sontag wrote in her 1977 work Illness as Metaphor.
