It’s just not.
If I HAD a choice, I would choose not to have it.
These are the cards I was dealt.
I will always have this illness.
It is not a bandwagon you can jump on, nor is it fashionable.
I talk about it because I decided to be open about my journey, not because I want attention or because I think it’s “cool” to have a mental illness.
It’s not cool.
It’s painful. It’s debilitating. It’s a constant struggle.
It’s not something that you WANT to have.
I wouldn’t wish mental illness on anyone.
This blog, my social media channels, they are my voice.
Sometimes I voice the good things.
Sometimes I voice the bad things.
All in all, it’s my journey.
The journey is real.
And so is my illness.
