not all sunshine and rainbows
By Tina Blacksmith

I grew up in a broken home.  That in itself took a huge toll on me.  Between the physical and emotional abuse, I was a nervous wreck, always on the lookout. Fast forward years later to 2017.  I’d like to say it’s all sunshine and rainbows but that is a huge lie.

It’s really hard to have good days when your brain won’t let you stop thinking about the scary days

I have good days.  But there are the bad days where I just don’t know what to do, what to think.  I just want to hide from the world.  Crying usually releases a lot of the emotion.  I’m so afraid because I know the bad days like to creep up on me like a black shadow out of nowhere.

I hate social situations

I have started actively trying to avoid people I know.  It’s easier to walk the other way than getting caught in a conversation of small-talk where I’m either picking at my skin or wishing I could just leave.

I just want people to know that there are so many struggling

You are not alone, even when your brain tries to trick you into thinking you are.  I hope someday the stigma ends.  No one deserves to be treated like they’re a freak because they have an illness others cannot see.
