You may know what these tablets are or know a loved one who takes them, but in case you don’t, I will fill you in. That medication allows people to deal with a normal day to day life. Although most days it leaves them tired, spaced out, emotionless, or even super emotional.

Crazy right? Why would anyone want to feel like that?

Well this is why!!

You see, some people suffer from severe depression and anxiety.

In their brain it doesn’t sit right, something seems different. They notice little differences that other people wouldn’t. Most days they wake up sick and feel sleepless.

They consistently overthink every situation.

Was a comment about them; was it a joke?

Was that person supposed to laugh?

Or did they mean it?

Are they being nice?

Are they talking about them?

Do they talk about them?

They then think, I bet they don’t like me really.

They say sorry all the time. They feel like they annoy everyone.

And for all those questions they will spend hours trying to answer. Let it all build up in their mind, until it sends them to tears… it’s mental that they see things that way.

It’s not only mental changes, but physical changes. They don’t eat a lot or they eat way too much. Insomnia, up all night answering questions to situations that don’t even exist, or sleep too much and waste half their day still feeling tired.

They still smile and they have every excuse for when you ask why.

But the tablets can help them. Because they know when they start to feel this way or think this way, they need help.

They know that when their behavior starts to change, They need guidance. And they understand that they don’t need to be ashamed. They don’t need to be understood. They just need to be accepted. Everyone is fighting a battle and sometimes you need to be kinder.

So I may just be another person who’s talking about mental health…

Living with this illness is hard, but trying to understand it, is even harder. It’s also 100 times harder if they have another condition on top of this.

Don’t suffer in silence.

Mental health is just as important as physical health.

Be part of the healing.

Be understanding.

It does matter @san_pedro . Whenever I post quotes from someone, I always post where I got it from. It’s a habit you should really try to get into. Especially if your going to take such a large chunk of text like that.

You don’t know what plagarism is?

It’s copying someone else’s writing and passing it off as your own. Not citing sources.
