World Mental Health day, October 10, 2017.
I used to hide it, but it was never hidden.
Silent cries for help are the loudest.
Don’t assume everything will be alright.
Someone will always be willing to help.
I was afraid to talk to someone, now I’m afraid of what happens when I don’t.
I’m not the same person every day, but I am the same person every day.
Never be afraid of asking for help.
Never be afraid of asking someone if they need help.
Never assume it’ll get better on it’s own.
I suffered undiagnosed for too long. I accepted help. It seemed like the hardest thing to do at the time, but it was the best course of action.
I’m alive because of the help I received and still receive today.
