It's hard to share and describe what mental illnesses feel like, it's hard to be understood and to understand.
Over the years, I've learned a lot of 'theory' about mental illnesses- ways of improving life, tools to cope.. I've walked with others through their journeys, had my own experiences, and found great value in the destructive and empty nature of disruptions within brain activity- which is what mental illnesses are- a disruption in regular function, that causes symptoms which are unhelpful and undesirable. I've also heard a lot of unhelpful opinions.
I recently had a dream, which reflected a lot of how I've been feeling recently. I wanted to share the dream, to give an image of just one person's mind without going over my life story.
