Things that are hard to do with mental illnesses:
Brush your teeth
Get out of bed
Stick to plans
Do I need to list more? It’s hard to do day to day tasks with mental illness.
People have told me to just do it.
Just do it. Duh.
But then there’s those days I can’t do anything. I want to “just do it”, I really really do. But my body is completely depleted of energy and my mind is completely full of anxiety. How could I possibly do what I know I need to when I can barely get up to go to work?
I remember the first day of medication clearly. It was such a shock to me that I could do everything I set my mind to. It felt like magic struck me.
That stain I’ve been ignoring for weeks- cleaned. Dishes in the sink- cleaned and put away. Laundry? No problem.
I guess it went away as my brain adjusted to the medication. I still have ups and downs, so Im going to talk to my psychiatrist soon.
I hope you are doing well!
