I don’t think people talk about mental illness a lot, but they need to know it’s OK to talk about how they are feeling. People are afraid of telling the truth because they think it’s going to hurt everyone around them. I’ve kept so much inside that I’ve literally lost it. I wish more people would get help when they feel like they need it— not just to look to medicine, but to the support of others.
