I’m coming to terms


I’m coming to terms that I am sick. I have a chronic illness.
I’m coming to terms that I will be on some form of medication for the rest of my life.
I’m coming to terms that this will be a part of me, but not necessarily who I am.
It’s hard to accept… to admit.
I know I’m not alone.
This isn’t my fault and was beyond my control.
I’m coming to terms that I’m still me.

Battles for diagnosis, lengthy waits for treatment, an over-reliance on drugs, and, frequently, an abject lack of compassion: this is the picture that people with mental health problems, their families and professionals paint of NHS mental health care. After the revelation that two-thirds of people with depression in the UK receive no treatment on the NHS, more than 600 people have answered a Guardian request for their stories – and they describe a system that is profoundly broken.

The incoming president of the Royal College of Psychiatrists, Prof Sir Simon Wessely, recently suggested people would be “absolutely appalled and screaming from the rooftops” if those going without treatment had cancer rather than mental health problems. Paul*, from Essex, a father of two daughters, has experienced those starkly differing standards. His eldest daughter was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2011 and had “exemplary treatment” on the NHS; she is now back at work and planning to get married.

His younger daughter, now in her late 20s, has had a personality disorder since her teens. “The effect over these years on all those close to her has been more catastrophic than having a daughter with cancer,” he says. “With cancer there is treatment, support, counselling – basically whatever you need. With mental health there’s next to nothing.” She was once taken to hospital after trying to kill herself, and on another occasion was tracked down by police after going missing. She is unable to work. “From a societal point of view, the cost, which could have been avoided if she had the right treatment early on, has been massive,” says her father. “And the human cost has been a wasted life.”

"Despite our complex cultural climate and what needs to be done for the greater good, it is still an unreasonable burden that someone who is marginalized must bear an extra set of responsibilities. It is unfair that prominent cultural figures who come out have to forge these inroads on our behalf; they carry the hopes of so many on their shoulders. They stand up and are counted so that someday things might actually be better for everyone, everywhere, not just the camera- or radio-ready celebrities for whom coming out is far easier than most.

[…]Perhaps we expect gay public figures and other prominent queer people to come out, to stand and be counted, so they can do the work we’re unwilling to do to change the world, to carry the burdens we are unwilling to shoulder, to take the stands we are unwilling to make."

I hate when I’m talking to someone and I can’t remember the specific story I’ve crafted for them about my mental illness (and, to a lesser extent, my physical illness). I say “story” because when I downplay my mental illness, I’m lying about my experiences. Sometimes I have to lie outright; sometimes I just omit things.

Mentally ill people shouldn’t have to do this, period. We should be able to tell every single person in our lives every detail of our mental health.

your life is worth living even if you’re “not doing anything”

your life is worth living even if you are “letting life pass you by”

your life is worth living even if you stay in bed all day every day watching netflix

you don’t have to be big, beloved, important, beautiful, wealthy or famous

there is dignity in just being

it is ok to be

you merely have to be

I found an old journal that I had forgotten all about!
I write reminders to myself and make are around them. It helps to keep myself calm or just to give me a bit of a lift.
