I'd say physical it is more likely to kill you and hider ability to do anything. Mental illness can be power of will at times. Granted mental illness is a case to case that varies drastically. So hard to say but I'd still got with physical, I've been in bed ridden for 3 months one time it was hell.

Speaking from a Medical point of view...They are BOTH terrible, and there are MANY awful Physical as well as Mental illnesses.

I'm simply going to have to go with Physical, because of all of those that are taken before their "time" from different types of Cancers and other Chronic Terminal illnesses...Its terrible.

Not saying that those who live with awful Mental diagnoses, and prognoses have it ANY better...The way that I look at it, THEY are cursed to LIVE, instead of perhaps have their sort of suffering ENDED by a Death, that...while horrible, TO THEM, would finally be the only end of the sort of suffering of which they endure.

Such a sad, sad topic....

I'd say mental is worse because when you have a physical problem people are more understanding but when it's mental a lot of people either treat you like you're being a baby or say that you should just not think about it or smile or think a certain way, that's not said as often about physical problems so mental are harder to deal with and you kinda feel like you need to conceal it more...

Don't think it's a wise thing to be comparing those two..

At least with mental illness you aren't aware of the problem in most cases. Although they are quite terrible.

My daughter is paralyzed from the neck down and has full mental capabilities. I think it's terrible to be aware of everything but unable to impact it in any way. She also can't speak or eat. Really can't imagine much worse to be honest

Agreed, if it doesn't get in my way it's a lot less bothersome than something that limits me, especially by a lot. Personally, I dislike my physical illnesses more because they cause the mental ones and then people don't listen to me because of the mental ones and it becomes a big thing but if the physical ones weren't such a problem I could maybe recover more from the mental ones. Then again, I can't really say for sure.
