I am tired of having to worry about telling people that I have a mental illness.
I am tired of being judged for a disease that I am not to blame for.
I am tired of people stereotyping me.
I am tired of the ignorance and assumptions made by those around me.
I am tired of having to clear up countless misconceptions about those with mental illnesses.
I am tired of being categorized by an illness.
I am tired of listening to people disrespect and disregard those with mental illnesses.
I am tired of the stigma of mental illnesses.
I am tired of even HAVING to be tired of these things.
I am tired and it is time for a change.
You are not alone in this. You are not. Thousands of people every day deal with the same issues that you do. You don’t have to be ashamed. You don’t have to be afraid.
Don’t give up. Fight the fight. Educate those around you. Change a mind about mental illness.
