My mental health is oftentimes crippling.
It causes a normal life to become not normal.
Anxiety and depression are a toxic pair that work together against me, making it difficult to do the most simple tasks.
It starts in the morning when I wake up. I fight the pressures to stay in bed as the voices inside of me scream that there is no point to getting up.
Once I am up, I feel as if I am asleep for most of the day.
I am always so tired.
It might be the meds. It might be my mind. I'm not really sure.
Either way, it's hard to truly wake up.
It's gotten better throughout the months. It truly does get better.
But then it gets worse. It is a vicious rollercoaster with extreme highs and lows.
But I embrace my mental health.
I advocate for others because it is a topic that deserves to be talked about.
People need to know they're not alone.
I might have anxiety and depression, but anxiety and depression don't have me.
