Mental illness changes you. You start to do things you always swore you'd never do. You get to a point you always sworw you'd never get to.
You look back at who you used to think you were, and it makes you sad because you fear you've gone too far to ever go back.
The desperation that comes with mental illness is what changes you. It simultaneously brings out the best and the worst in you.
Mental illness f---s you up, and then you're left holding the shattered pieces wondering...
How the hell did I get here?

Dont be afraid to get help..i was depressed off and on until my late 30s...don't wait long

I was never shattered. It's not like shattered glass can write or think. I really just came out of the equation damaged and rather desensitized, or maybe I died a while ago but just can't admit it.

I also have a mental illness. The most irritating part of it for myself is when people act like i'm not getting better or doing well because I don't "want it bad enough." If you ever need someone to talk to, pm me.

Yeh, I've been bipolar for over 40 years, I don't even remember life before it
