"It's all in your head"
"Breath, calm down,you know lots of people have it worse"
"Get over it. Learn to deal with it"
"Just think about it logically"
"You're stronger than this, just fight it"
"There's no reason for you to feel this way"
"You're being dramatic"
"It's not like a disease"
"It's not like cancer, it doesn't take over your organs"
Oh, But it does.
We know we shouldn't be feeling this way!
We know other people have it worse!
We know we're being ridiculous!
We know we should be fighting harder!
We know it's all in our heads!
We know and it only makes it worse.
We know it doesn't suck away our appearances and kill off our organs.
We know it isn't visible.
Now let me tell you something we don't know.
It IS visible.
You see it, or you wouldn't have said it.
It DOES suck away our appearances.
Lack of sleep, sagging shoulders, unhealthy eating, being blue or distraught! All of even the MINOR symptoms have an effect on our appearances and body.
We have no energy or too much energy.
We WISH we could sleep!
We eat TOO much or not enough!
We CAN'T find the motivation to GET OUT OF BED!
Yet we often times do.
We hold in our tears all day.
We want nothing more than to scream, and break things, and just be listened to!
We don't need to be understood.
We just need support.
Now let's address something else we dont know.
It DOES take over an organ.
It DOES destroy the functionality of an organ that is VITAL to living!
The brain is the organ that IS us.
It runs ALL of our organs.
It keeps us breathing.
Tells our heart to pump.
It's how we speak,
Why we move.
How much we know.
It literally controls everything about our bodies.
Our brain IS us.
The brain is a wonderful thing that no one truly understands.
But there is a SCIENTIFICALLY PROVEN change in our brain's function with different mental illnesses.
It is like Cancer.
A cancer that everyone turns their heads to.
A plague that no one wants to accept.
Not even those of us with it.
It attaches, and there is no cure.
It's always there and will come back at the most random moments just because.
There doesn't even have to be a trigger!
There doesn't have to be a reason other than a chemical imbalance!
But that's just in your head.
It's not like missing A+ blood type with B-.
It's not like Asthma that stops your breath.
It's all in your head.
So it must not be real.
