Putting Words To It
While reading a piece of writing for my Lit class, I came across a great quote describing what many of us feel. I feel that this accurately describes mental and emotional pain, whether from mental illness or chronic physical illness that takes a toll on you mentally and emotionally. I feel this especially describes the emotional pain associated with Borderline Personality Disorder which is known as the equivalent to third degree burns over 90% of your body.
This quote is from a writing titled "Babylon Revisited".
"They're not like aches or wounds; they're more like splits in the skin that won't heal because there's not enough material."
