Work

Everybody I know is tired. You are tired. I am tired. Your work wears on you.

In addition to the work, you battle the monotony of doing the same things repeatedly. Laundry breeds in the closet. School homework is eternal. Customers keep showing up. Things break and require fixing, again.

Emotional Health

When I was little I wouldn’t eat for days at a time if I knew my friend was having a party. That way, I could stuff my face at my friend’s house and the kids wouldn’t think anything was wrong.

They wouldn’t know I was secretly starving myself to death.

This is what it’s like to have a mental illness. To pretend you’re okay, when you’re not. To wish to be normal, when you’re secretly hurting — and hating — yourself.

Only the insides of your walls know you’re not okay. Only your family knows you scream at your parents and slam the door, weeping, your sisters huddling by their beds praying you won’t commit suicide and your brother buying you coffee mugs that say “I Love You Beary Much” and then, when you don’t want the mug, drawing pictures of you as a wrecking ball slamming into the wall that is his family.
