“Yes i self-harm. Yes i contemplate suicide. Yes i have depression. Yes i have anxiety. Yes i am a mental health patient.
But that is not WHO I AM.
All that is an illness not a choice.
Recognise it as a illness.
It’s something i’m trying to recover from slowly.
Nothing heals overnight, some things take years, some weeks.
My illness needs time too.
If your ill, don’t be so hard on yourself, take it a step at a time, sometimes i have to take it an hour at a time, i get so scared of the future and the time ahead of me, but stop, think of only the next hour, and after that hour the next. It’s okay to be poorly.
Lets recover together.”
