It’s OK to Not be OK

“People think I should be able to handle my illnesses without medicine. In reality without my medicine, my illnesses would handle me.”

There is no difference between your brain not being able to make the correct levels of neurotransmitters and wearing glasses to correct your vision. The brain is, in fact, the most complex organ in the body. Mental illnesses are disorders of the brain. Taking medication is not a weakness it can help you feel strong again.

Many people struggle with intense emotions struggle with feeling lonely, misunderstood, and believe there is something wrong with them. If you feel this way, please consider reaching out for additional support and guidance. You deserve to enjoy life no matter your diagnosis.
