I’m a Great Actress

If you were to meet me without knowing me from social media, you would probably see me as a pretty happy, and fun, person.

I am. I am a happy person with depression.

I can hide my mental illness extremely well.

Most people have no idea that I may be having a bad day.

It’s not because I don’t want to share it. I just don’t want to place that burden on others.

You can say otherwise to me for days. I see it as a burden.

I am a military brat. We moved a lot. I learned to assess and adapt.

So, every day, I assess and adapt.

My medication doesn’t erase my depression and anxiety. It lessens the demeaning whispers, and the constant hourly battle with my brain.

I still have not-so-good days, and I realize that I should be sharing them.

It’s something I need to feel comfortable doing. It’s not as easy as people think.

I’m working on it.

Until then, the Actress will continue her job, and hide what I am uncomfortable sharing.
