I am…

I’m a human being.
I have a mental disorder.

I am your significant other/co-worker/boss/family member. I am your car dealer/hairdresser/first responder/politician. I am anyone you see on a regular basis.

I am a human being.
I have a mental disorder.

I have to live with this.
I can’t cure this.
I can’t make it go away.
I have to manage this with talk therapy and pills that level my moods.

I’m a human being.
I have a mental disorder.

Stop treating me like I’m subhuman.
I have get to a level of stability and clarity.
I want your help, although I tell you to leave me the hell alone.
I need you to hold me and tell me everything’s going to be alright when I’m at my worst.

I am a human being.
I have a mental disorder.

I deserve love.
I deserve happiness.
I deserve to be treated like an equal.
I deserve life.

I am a human being.
I have a mental disorder.

  1. You do deserve love. You do deserve happiness. You do deserve life…
    Some people have these things readily at their fingertips… almost every day… and for some of us it’s a battle – but one worth fighting, and one you deserve to win.
