Jokes about mental illness aren’t funny #Depression #Anxiety

One of my SIL shared a “joke” on FB about #Bipolar women saying/doing things that are opposite.
It just made me really sad that she, like so many people, can be completely oblivious and insensitive to the struggles those of us face in managing our mental illness. I don’t even know if I should mention anything to her about it since I doubt it would make a difference. I’m just feeling super disappointed in people today. 😞 #CheckInWithMe #Disappointed #strugglingtoday


BPD newly diagnosed #BorderlinePersonalityDisorder

I feel it’s time to post as I’m feeling terribly lost. I tend to keep everything to myself but right now in this moment today I cannot. I need to know that this self hatred and these feelings of intense dread will pass. I’m newly diagnosed and while it gave me clarity today I am feeling very low and I don’t see a clear path. I was hoping people could help me by sharing that I’m not the only one feeling like this. This will pass. And I’m not the horrible person I believe I am today. Thank you.

The school struggle #School #strugglingtoday

School was never easy but when i was diagnosed with HS i thought it would be the end of the world as a high school student the bullying is outrageous but it could always be worse it hurts a lot and i have gym which makes it worst but im doing big things like graduating a year early so it could always be worse. A thing i could say is you can pull through and fight for what you want.


#iwanttogiveup #Mentallyandphysicallyexhausted #lost #strugglingtoday

I’m so ready to give up. I’m just existing at this point. I want to start living but every time I try to something knocks me down again. I’m exhausted mentally and physically. Between my body failing on me and mentally being just as broken. I relapsed and burned myself. It had been over a year since I’d done any self harm. I feel so lost. I don’t know what to do with myself anymore. Meds aren’t working anymore and I haven’t been able to get an appt with a new psych since my move 3 months ago. I don’t want to end up in the hospital again but it’s getting incredibly close to happening.


I’m tired #Anxiety #breakdown #exhausted

I’m tired. I’m exhausted. I’m absolutely done with dealing with people. I want to hide in a hole and sleep for days. My bed is comfortable and is my safety net.

I’m at work. It’s Wednesday and everything is going wrong. I manage a store, my assistant manager called out for the third day in a row. My senior employee who is going part time needs either an hour and a half lunch or 4 hour lunch. I’m at my store by myself for 5-6 hours. They don’t understand I am picking up their slack, trying to get all my paperwork and my job done while doing theirs. They apologize or say thank you without realizing they are running me to the ground.

This is the second summer, I am getting short staffed and I’m the only one who has to be at the store 5 days a week for close to 11 hours a day. Yes, it’s my job but the lack of respect or realization what I am doing is going unnoticed by my employees and even my boss. I’ve been with this company for 3 years and I honestly love it but what I deal with at my store, no other manager has had to deal with for 2 summers in a row.

I want to have fun at work, I want to be a manager who has employees who are going to be at the store when they are scheduled. I want employees who realize the things I do for them on a daily basis. My life gets put on hold for them. I have to stay late if they call out or need to go home early. I can’t call out and I can only go home early if I am fully staffed.

I’m tired. I’m exhausted. I’m done. I want to sleep. I don’t want to stress and I don’t want my anxiety through the roof at work. I want my bed.

Please send help or advice to curb how exhausted I am from work. #Anxiety #exhausted #StrugglingWithEmotion #strugglingtoday

Struggling is so hard... I’m not even sure I’m supposed to, yeah? My life is consisted from the battle & hospitals. I hate all this, seriously. Especially, when my therapist said: «Oh, I don’t even know what would I do in your situation»..
