The therapist asked 
what does mental illness
look like to you?
It's not being able 
to attain and maintain
healthy, long-lasting
meaningful, relationships.
To hold or get a job.
It's addiction and
a lack of self-soothing.
Self-hatred, self-sabotage.
People running away.
Inappropriate and bad social cues and listening.
It means no invites,
no parties. Frightened
stares and anxiety and fear  and shame. 
For at the core
the system is defective.
