To talk about mental health is one thing.
To suffer from a mental health problem is other.
But to live or deal with someone who has it is another personal little battle we have in our minds, which can be really hard to win at times.
With a lot of sudden changes at home (all good ones) it did overwhelm Dad. There were times i was losing patience, but i had to remind myself of the magnitude of his battle. Even tho it takes a few hours for his temper to fizzle out and then he is visibly riddled with guilt.
You have to remind yourself it’s not him. People are far worse as a human and as a father without any disorder.
Then I am working with this guy, who is one grade above me and is given this task to superwise me. Explaining his overall personality will be wastage of time and it’s irrelevant. The important is that the guy is struggling with something and its a common knowledge. Since he is the nicest guy here everyone kinda works around his issues. Everyone says things like “he has his own issues but whatever he does isn’t intentional, he is not evil”.
Im glad thats how people think about him rather than taking advantage of his situation, which is very convenient.
I have had a ton of problems just because of his constant confusion and communication problem. But again, you have to remind yourself. I don’t know how long I can do this. I’m affraid one day I might snap, but I try.
About my own anxieties. Work isnt even giving me time for that. Yesterday i got home, ate when to bed and wasnt even laying when i fell asleep. Woke up in the middle had a biscuit laying next to me, set alarm, booked my ride and fell asleep again! Listening to a true crime show.
And btw I’m somebody who used to struggle with insomnia…
I like it. At least I can sleep.
Again there’s so much i wanna say, but typing it on my phone with few stolen minutes in the middle.
Oh, guys, please do check my mental health reblogs. And do visit the original posts. They all are worth reading. Please give your precious few minutes to these stories, you won’t regret it.
In the end i will just say, please be kind to everyone and yourself.
P.s. The feature image is a page from my work notepad. This is what happens when you are a lot of things at once.
