Have you ever read one of those “Ten things your guy wished you knew” or “Ten things your mother-in-law would never tell you but thinks you should know” (though in many cases—unfortunately for you, there’s nothing your mother in law wouldn’t tell you). Well I wanted to create a lists of things that those of us who struggle with mental illness wished the rest of the world knew—and hopefully get insight from my support team about what they wish I knew!
Number Thirteen: Sometimes I feel like my life is a continual pattern of “Friday the 13th”. Let me throw myself a pity party sometimes (you are of course invited–as long as you’re not cheerful).
(Yeah I’ve covered this idea before, but had to do something with “luck” for the 13th one!)
Disclaimer: Not all of these thought will reflect all people, in the same way not all “Ten things your guy wished you knew” would relate to my husband—some will not even relate to me. They are thoughts/concerns/opinions I’ve heard when talking with fellow adventurers along the journey that is mental illness.
