Hey my lovey readers it has been awhile I’m soo sorry about that but I’m back.
Let’s talk about mental health because it truly sucks! Am I right? I have been suffering with aniexty and depression almost my whole life, it doesn’t seem to get easier. As I got older I felt that it has gotten way worse.
People think having depression is your just sad but there is way more to depression then being sad. Having depression is not fun and it’s exhausting. I find myself always sleeping or crying and not being able to explain why. People who are dealing with depression understand the daily struggle and how it effects us each and everyday.
Now aniexty is even more exhausting then being depressed you feel like your on edge all the time and can’t handle life sometimes. I know there are days I am to scared to even go outside that day. One day I had to take an Uber 5mins away from my house which I’ve done a bunch of times but this time was different. I ended up being alone in the Uber and having a panic attack because I was so scared and nervous. People who do not suffer do not understand how we feel.
Having both makes me not want to get out of bed somedays or do anything that day. Life becomes very hard when feeling the way we do. There’s day’s I feel completely useless or worthless as a person or even as a mother. There’s day’s I feel like I shouldn’t be alive. But then I have those good days when I feel I am on-top of the world.
Having mental health isn’t fun and it sucks but we learn to cope with it and deal with it throughout our lives. I’ve been on pills for over a year now and they do help because without them I wouldn’t be able to function at all. Also it’s important to have a great support system because without one you will feel your all alone in this struggle. Make sure you have a creative outlet, for example writing in a notebook, doing a puzzle or even colouring something that will relax your mind. Lastly go see your doctor and don’t be ashamed you need help because remember your not the only one going through this.
Mental health is hard and exhausting but remember your not alone suffering there are millions of others just like you and me. Your doing the best you can with what your dealing with and don’t be scared to ask for help when you need it because there’s someone out there dealing with what you are.
You are beautiful. You are strong. You can do it. Always remember you are not alone.
Until next time.
