Facebook Statuses For Mental Health Awareness Month, May 2015

TODAY, IT HURTS TO BREATHE

I SELF-DIAGNOSED

MYSELF ON THE INTERNET

SOMETIMES IT FEELS LIKE I’M ON FIRE

SOMETIMES I DON’T KNOW HOW THE FIRE STARTED OR HOW TO PUT IT OUT

SOMETIMES WHEN I BURN, IT STILL ISN’T BRIGHT ENOUGH

MY NEXT TATTOO WILL STRATEGICALLY COVER ALL THOSE SCARS YOU PRETENDED NOT TO SEE THAT SUMMER

LAST NIGHT I SAT ON MY ROOF TO SEE IF I WOULD JUMP OFF BUT I’M STILL
HERE

MY BORDERLINE PERSONALITY DISORDER HATES ME ALMOST AS MUCH AS I
HATE MYSELF

SOMETHING SMELLS IN HERE; I THINK IT’S ME

I TOOK MY ANXIETY OUT FOR BRUNCH AND SHE WAS TOO AFRAID TO EAT
ANYTHING

I TOOK MY TRAUMA OUT ON A DATE AND SHE CRIED AFTER WE HAD SEX

I TOOK MY DEPRESSION OUT FOR DINNER BUT SHE FORGOT HOW TO WALK AND
MISTOOK THE RESTAURANT FOR OUR BED SO WE LAY THERE ALL DAY

WHICH IS TO SAY, SOME DAYS ARE HARDER THAN OTHERS

WHICH IS TO SAY, SOME MONTHS ARE HARDER THAN OTHERS

WHICH IS TO SAY, SOME YEARS ARE HARDER THAN OTHERS

WHICH IS TO SAY, I’M STILL HERE
