Statuses People With Mental Illness Want to Post on Facebook, but Don’t

“If you really knew what challenged me today, you’d understand what a victory it is for me to still be alive.”

“The mental illness is there every single day, and it’s exhausting.”

“It’s tough always being stuck in my head, my past. I cannot just get over it like I want to.”

Anxiety is my life. I feel it all the time and in most situations. A lot of times I just need to recharge and can’t be around others.”

“I’m tired of saying sorry for my mental health when I need to change plans, move a test or anything.”

“I obsess about killing myself. One day I’m scared the voices will win.”

“Not much hurts me more than when you tell me you think I wouldn’t need to take my antidepressants if I just got some exercise and went to church.”

“I’m not happy. But that doesn’t mean I’m sad all the time. And when I smile and laugh, it doesn’t mean I’m happy either.”

“Some days I am using every tool in my bag and it’s still not enough. I wish time moved faster so I could go to sleep in hope of a better tomorrow.”

“I’m still the same person I was before you found out I have a mental illness.”
