Anxiety is having this huge weight on your chest, it feels like it crushed you and it walks all over you. You struggle to breathe. You struggle cause you don’t know where to turn. You can’t hide your emotions, because your emotions are drowning you.
Depression is this feeling of not knowing if you are coming or going. You can’t think straight, you can’t sit down and focus, you can’t do your day to day activities. You find it hard to go out, to get a shower and sometimes it’s just hard to get out of bed.
OCD is a feeling of not being able to settle down. You can over think, you can over complicate every tiny thing in your mind. You’re obsessed and you feel crazy and no matter how many times you try and hide it, Its always there.
Anger is a burning feeling. Wether that being to someone you don’t like, or something that can cause you pain. In my eyes, Anger bulids up over time. You can’t just go from Happy to Angry in a matter of 0.01 seconds. It takes time and when it shows and comes out, by god it can be the most frightening thing.
The reason I wanted to explain all of this tonight, is because these are the 4 types of Mental Health that I have been diagnosed with. Over the last four weeks, I have sat there and I have felt sorry for myself. Not anymore.
It’s time for me to take back my life. It’s gonna be hard and it’s going to be alot of work, but I am my own boss.
So to everyone who is out there that is suffering. You have got this. Today it may not seem like you can get through it, but tomorrow is a NEW day, it’s a NEW start.
So wake up, get yourself out of bed and make a nice cup of tea or coffee and remember, by you doing that – you are proving to yourself that you are alot stronger than you think!
