Some mental illnesses, urge you to hide away from the world, for various reasons. With me it’s because I don’t want to burden people with my problems. People can go out looking for you but the truth is, even though you need help, you don’t want to be found.
This is dedicated to all those who support those who struggle, that are there to help them out of their dark phases. Without you we probably wouldn’t be alive today
Since the beginning of this year, I’ve been coming off, (psychiatrists orders) of mood stabilisers. I’m now on the last hurdle before I’m off them completely… however recently paranoid thoughts have been getting in my head.
“The roof is going to collapse on you.”
“The car is going to crash.”
Soon, the thoughts begin to take over. I’ve tried to ignore it but they begin to build up.
It feels like the world is going to end whether you ignore them or not because in the end the fear tries to take over everything.
I’ve created 4 new images for the mental health project I’m doing, This project has become part of my- Time To Talk Pledge- http://www.time-to-change.org.uk/
I pledged to educate others about mental health and raise awareness.
