People see with their eyes, which makes living with Mental Illness and Chronic Pain so hard. People don’t see the pain we carry on the inside, the struggles, the anxiety. The constant battles with ourselves. From the fights we have with ourselves over getting up, to how hard it was getting ourselves out of the house. To now fighting to keep ourselves out long enough to get things done, before not being able to stay out anymore because your getting so over welcomed, that you need to be back in the comfort of your own home. This is my reality every day, and many just like me. this is why I want people to understand, just because you can’t see something on the outside doesn’t mean something isn’t going on, on the inside. A simple are you OK is all that is needed, and never judge a book by it’s cover.
