Mental illness is a serious, life-long, life-debilitating condition. I have to live with this for the rest of my life.
I take appropriate medication every day, twice a day. I don’t fall asleep until hours after midnight after I’ve already worked my head out from underwater.
When I do eventually wake up the next day, my head feels heavy with depression all over again.
I have to contemplate living almost every day. Solidarity is so important to us. Sometimes it is our only lifeline. Please try to educate yourself on what we go through before having any preconceived notions. BPhope.com is a great resource for Bipolar Disorder.
