Mental Illness is So Relatable

Something I never thought I'd need to deem "Quote-worthy..." but it’s helping me cope. -When people #hurt they need you for EVERYTHING. When I hurt people see me as nothing. I am subjectively invisible... #mentalillness 😔 -Even if you’re by yourself, you’re never truly alone.  🙏 -I may not know exactly what you’re going through but I do know what it feels like to struggle. #pain -Pain is universal. But I’m so glad we are so alike! #unity -Don’t live #life by a setting of defaults. #Flaws are so freaking #beautiful 🙏 -Pain is certain. Suffering is option #PMA #NotAlone  ...

This is the answer to the epidemic...

He doesn’t see it; he really is blind to it all! I can’t tell him anymore than I have or else I’d be putting a stigma on the one I love most. But it’s just so hard to sit around and watch him stumble, smell his clothes and breath, and hear him slur his words like nothing was wrong; while everything is terribly wrong.
