You ever feel like your drowning and don’t know how to save yourself? I think the hardest part about dealing with depression and anxiety is that the signs and symptoms are often internal and because people can’t always see it, they often have difficulty understanding it. These past few months have been so incredibly difficult, and while I have a supportive family it can feel alienating to deal with my mental health issues while not wanting to overburden them. At times it can be so hard to silence the negative voice in my head that tells me I am not good enough, that I am unlovable, that I am meant to live a life of sadness and despair. I recently have been dealing with a life set-back and it upsets me that normal life events seem to be so traumatic for me. Sometimes it feels like I’m not adept to handle life’s challenges, like I am faulty and missing some sort of perseverance gene. At the moment I am overwhelmed with school and find myself falling behind. It is hard to overcome the constant fatigue I feel and even more difficult to explain that school has been such a struggle because of things I am dealing with in regards to my mental health. I am trying really hard to get back on the bandwagon but it has been feeling a bit impossible. Just feeling a little frustrated at myself.

    That is often the most frustrating part, learning how to get out of your own head. I am going through a pretty rough time right now and am really trying to push through. I have internalized so many ideas and thoughts about myself that it is hard to move past them and allow myself to be happy and healthy.
