    I've had doctors tell me I suffer from

    Do I Always Need To Explain?

    I try so hard to be strong for those around me. To not show how much I'm hurting. When I need to break down, I always do it alone, out of sight, out of reach. I don't want to burden anyone with my problems. But occasionally, I just break, like I did yesterday. One person, anyone...

    I wish you could see what's wrong with me.

    it's all hidden, deep inside. Depression, anxiety, and a feeling that things are just not right. It is with these things I fight.
