Uncertainty, Mental Illness, Friendship

The people who understand me the most are those in as fragile a situation as I am. Those who've dealt with being misunderstood and judged for their minds not working as they once did. It is always a blessing to be understood but I never understood the risk of such connections. Because the bond formed... Continue Reading →


Frustration & Hesitation

I hate that I am scared to ask for "professional" help when I am not doing well because I am pretty sure it'll end up with me forcefully committed. Because I know I am not doing well but I wouldn't say I need another stint in a ward. But...there's questions that I do have. Questions... Continue Reading →

Wavering Inspiration

So I have this thing where I start something with all the energy and focus in the world. And I am super pumped about it and dive headlong into it.

Nightmare Reality

I somehow managed to convince myself that I'd be okay..that despite all the stress this year I can handle myself. That everything was fine and I don't need help. That my mind was finally settled after all these years and that all that'll bother me is the mood aspect of my illness. I somehow managed... Continue Reading →

Discovering Belief in Self

It's hard to feel good about one's efforts when everything and everyone around you seems to be telling you that you're best is not enough. When the world seems to be about how we compare to a certain standard. There is this image of success that is apparently the only way we can live. And... Continue Reading →


Another night spending hours awake while the world around me sleeps. Another day spent exhausted because I haven't slept enough. Another week with this sleep debt just piling on. ©End Your Sleep Deprivation I know this lack of sleep doesn't help ease my levels of psychosis, but it isn't like I don't want to sleep!...
