Too tired to think #Depression

Most days I struggle to get out of the house. It takes me several hours just to get dressed. When I am finally ready I begin to feel nauseous, unable to focus. My mind is going in a million different directions. I am emotionally drained.

Looking in the mirror

Why is it .. when you do look in the mirror you never like what you see ? All you do see is the negative you can be so cruel to yourself at times. I very rarely look in a mirror and don’t have full length mirrors or large mirrors in my house all I have is a small handheld mirror I can’t bare to look at myself . Does anyone else feel the same. mirror

A Big "if"

Lately, I've been wondering what would my old friends from my past would think of they saw me today, being my true self. I've wondered if by diluting my identity made me look dumb or needy. (Then again, I did it to appeal to those I've called friends.) I did a huge disservice to my emotional intelligence, and I know this now because looking back, I wasn't like them. And I knew it deep down inside. #MentalHealth #Depression #BorderlinePersonalityDisorder #Identity #emotionalintellegence

If you could be brutally honest about your mental health in one sentence, what would you say?

Too often, we feel like we need to sugar coat how we're doing. Every once in a while, we need to be honest -- brutally honest -- with our support system (and ourselves). When we're honest, we're able to address how we're feeling head on, instead of letting our feelings fester.

So tell me, if you could be brutally honest about your mental health in one sentence, what would you say?

Extra points if you add who you're going to tell or what you're going to do to support yourself. ❤️
