Silent illnesses

The problem with silent illnesses is just that. They can’t be seen. They can’t be heard. They are only known by those who suffer it.

I am going on day two of this. I don’t want to go to the office, because I don’t want to deal with people.

The mind won’t slow down and races. It’s a sadness all the time, and not because I am unhappy. It’s a constant tightness and pain in the chest while the mind overthinks everything. And it’s always feeling like you aren’t good enough to life, work, love and everything even when you know for a fact you are.

It’s a struggle and a battle. It’s lonely and it’s hard because no matter how many words you try to express it in.. it’s not right. Major depressive disorder and generalized anxiety disorder are beasts.
