The Worst Thing Mental Illness Did to Me!

Depression, chronic pain, panic disorders, and eating disorders are all like a double edged sword with no winning; especially coupling them all together into one horrible, wretched scenario. That is, at least until you get your twenty minutes of solace each day. We all know there are those twenty good minutes to remind us that there must be some sense of hope, until, we are torn to absolute shreds again. Dealing with depression or anxiety with chronic pain is worse than anything I’ve ever had to just “wait out.” And that’s exactly what it is… a waiting game! Who wins?...
