The following statements are from a consumer’s perspective of their experiences of mental health.
“I am not alone even though I feel alone I am not alone even though I feel alone with company” Sabrina Benaim
“I have beautiful friends and family. Why is it I always feel alone? Am I in such a bad mental state that I feel like I can’t ask for help? Or is it that I can’t be helped? Today is a bad day I feel like a failure at everything. Why can’t I stay in the slightest consistent? Even though I’m trying so hard everyday to stay afloat and not be wiped out by this tidal wave of aggressive depression. How embarrassing. Did you know I cried at the shops today because I was too anxious to ask the shop assist for change. I feel pathetic. It feels like I can’t function like a normal human being. I know my mental health doesn’t control me or define me but everything is always overwhelming. I constantly feel like I’m too much but not enough. I feel like I’m in my own personal version of hell. But I feel like hell would actually feel nicer than this. My PTSD haunts me my anxiety is sickening my depression is torturing. My head always just hurts. But I look normal?” Anonymous.
“My mental state is consuming. It feels like waking up and getting out of bed is the biggest effort. Sometimes I’ll just lay there for hours because the thought of going outside and interacting with the real world terrifies me. My anxiety gives me pins and needles in my hands. I feel my heart beat through my chest as it echoes in my head. There is never not a point where my hands are not drenched with my own sweat. The waves of my depression sweep me up and slam me down. Suffocating and drowning in the tsunami of my sadness” Anonymous.
My BPD constantly makes me feel like every emotion I feel is fed though an amplifier. But with this amplifier it’s turned to max. And we can’t turn it down. Everything always hits me harder than anything. I feel to much. I love too hard. I’m so sensitive it makes me sick” Anonymous.
