Mental Illness is such a tender topic. One that many people refuse to talk about it because;
a) they have it and don’t want to be judged, or
b) they don’t know how to react when it’s brought up.
There are multiple comic strips and pictures circling throughout Reddit and various picture sharing sites that address the abnormal double standards of Mental Illness and Physical Illness. When someone is diagnosed with mental illness, most people feel as if their world has come tumbling down. Depression, being the most common of mental illness, can be the easiest to be rid of. A lot of patients protest that a active and healthy lifestyle mixed in with positivity and perhaps a prescribed dosage of the appropriate anti-depressant will actually “cure” it. I don’t believe Mental Illness can be cured. I believe it can be eased and most positively treated. There’s a whole other spectrum of Mental Illness that is much more serious to delve into. Some I have a strong connection to and others I have no idea how someone can cope and live with them.
My confession is that I have depression. I’ve had depression for the past six years. I take medication for it. A low dosage, but still a dosage. Every once and a while, I go through these hills and valleys of slumps. Some of them can be triggered by a tragedy and sometimes they can be triggered by something so idiotic as gaining extra weight. Now, in the Entertainment Industry, image is everything. So when I make a big deal about my face or weight, I say it’s for my career, but that’s complete an utter bullshit. There are many beautiful and talented entertainers and performers in the industry who aren’t perfect, mentally and physically. From the big time names to the local legends and mentors that help me throughout my life, they’re not perfect.
I’m not ready to divulge my skeletons in my closet just yet. A lot of them, I need to still face and deal with them on my own first. When I write these posts, it’s like me locking the box and throwing the key in the ocean. Except someone can always find the box, open it and share it with whom ever they please. They can do that because I’M okay with that. The things I’M not okay with, I won’t share until I’m ready. Now as I’m writing this, I’m realizing I might be repeating myself. This is because I haven’t had a decent night’s sleep in about a week and a half. The main reason being my depression slump.
I have always been the “bubbly” person and the “life of the party”! All the times I was those things, I was being honest because that’s how I felt in those moments. Smiling is so much more fun then frowning. Not to mention I have good teeth. I keep my slumps personal because to subject people to that is unfair and to be honest? I don’t want your pity. If you want to understand it, ask me. I’ll be more than willing to lend some answers.
So I leave you with one final question. Am I any different to you now that you know I have depression?
To feel broken is a scary thing. To look at yourself in the mirror and not be truly happy with who you’re becoming. You see the wrongs falling into place, the bad habits becoming patterns. You know you can stop them, but is stopping them worth all the resistance you unwillingly know you’ll face each day? Each day is a battle with yourself; a battle with myself. I hate putting such struggles into such a public forum, but a part of me feels relief. Could be my inner Bella Swan or just my brooding artist side, but it feels right. So to hang my laundry on the clothesline and let it dry, I’m going to be making this my journal. Some posts will remain private, some won’t. Names will be changed unless asked otherwise, situations might be exaggerated to suit my need to make my life a movie. I’ll crash the reality back into my writings undoubtedly, but for now just indulge me. I promised a look into my journey. I promised a peepshow. Instead of hiding behind various “reblogs” that somewhat convey how I feel, why not show it through my literary talents.
Jenna Malone and Jennifer Lawrence will be my best friends.
