Mental Illness Feels Like

Mental illness feels isolating. It feels like I am losing control. Today I didn’t open the living room curtains or turn on the lights. I got my daughter to school just before second bell rang. I laid on the couch and my body ached. My mind was numb.

I flipped through Netflix with little interest to watch anything, even a mindless comedy. I settled on a documentary, Pet Fooled, about the pet food industry. A depressing show on a depressing day.

I searched Imgur for random images about depression, trying to spark an emotion. I am just so worn out from being me. Tomorrow is a new day.

Here’s some pictures I found today on Imgur.
