Day 17: If you could get rid of your mental illness (es) would you? Why or why not?
I would ABSOLUTELY get rid of feeling depressed and anxious and make it so I would be able to stop taking anti-depressants in a heartbeat.
Perhaps it would make me nobler to feel that I should continue to suffer and fight to combat the stigma and diseases themselves. But selfishly, I would prefer to not know this kind of suffering and pain anymore. Happiness has eluded me for far too long and if it were a matter of choice, there wouldn’t be a moment’s hesitation.
I cannot honestly say I am sorry for this, although I am aware this question is just playing pretend I still feel a bit guilty for wanting to cast off these demons of mine.
Unfortunately, I am stuck with them, and they are stuck with me and as long as that is so…we will have to make the best of each other.
