Mental Health: Almost a Human

A week or so ago I feel asleep without taking my meds and that night messed me up for several days. Strangely, though, I have since been able to focus better at work. Home? Not so much. There is still more than I can manage at work, but I am making progress. A tweet I saw a few days ago encapsulated my troubles writing accurately in saying emotional exhaustion was preventing them from doing so. That hit hard, I won’t lie. My psych feels that my mental health is sufficiently endangered enough to consider me disabled. I have always fought back, but it has gotten so difficult to do so that I tend to choose my battles with it. I know that I will survive because that has always been the case. But to do so at every minute when I am alone is, at least for now, not feasible.

To all of you waging the battles no one knows or can comprehend, you are not alone and are loved.

  1. You are not alone either and you are loved. Still keeping you in my prayers. Won’t ever lose hope for you. I’m glad you’ve had at least some progress. I’ve been battling chronic headaches and fatigue. It’s not helping my mental health.

  2. I can totally relate. I am a complete mess if I don’t take my medicine. I have been struggling with mental illness for a very long time. I am not ashamed to say that I have Bipolar Disorder and PTSD. It’s a part of who I am. Actually, I do receive Social Security Disability Income for my PTSD. It’s been 4 years since I worked. I admire anyone with mental illness who can work and lead a normal life. I struggle to go to the grocery store. However, I am tired of living this way. I enrolled in school, even though it’s been 18 years since I graduated with my Bachelor’s Degree. I apologize if this was too much information, but your post inspired me to share.

    1. Never apologize. You are who you are and, though it is part of you, mental health issues do not define you. My psych considers me disabled as my issues get so extreme. You’ve got this. 💕
