Unless you have it,don’t tell us that do have it to snap out of it. Its an illness we can’t control or stop. We might can sometimes ease it & that’s as good as it gets. It can be triggered,but often falls over us like a busted rain cloud. You may see us as lazy or even dodging life. Its an illness that can’t be cured by a few hobbies or 1 big adventure. Its an illness that weakens us,leaving us powerless,helpless,hopeless,& confused. We aren’t lazy…we are sick. Its a battle,a fight that leaves us drained & exhausted. Our own thoughts abuse & torture us. Our thoughts are insane. We are suffering mentally & emotionally…& even physically. Unless you have this illness,you have no idea what its like & what it does. Its a cruel,heartless tyrant…an enemy that won’t go away. Fear sets in & sometimes becomes phobias & panic attacks. Worst case scenarios lock in. You worry excessively. Every problem is a mountain. Survival mode kicks in. At its worst you might become suicidal. You want out,but are trapped & powerless.
