This progressive road to recovery is rather slow,
it is very tiring and so much hard work,
there is so much stigma and so much judgement against people like me,
but I am not giving up this fight to constantly prove them wrong,
and prove to people I can get better and do the same things as them,
it just might take me longer,
because I have not got as much energy as you,
you might not understand why but it doesn’t matter how long I take to do something,
I can still have the same opportunities as you.
I am feeling very tired, and sometimes run down,
but I am more determined then ever to get things working my way.
I am going to get better,
I am going to succeed,
I am going to be the same person I was last year,
I am going to regain my confidence,
I am going to make you understand,
mental illness isn’t a joke,
It’s as serious as anything else,
but recovery is possible and I am going to prove it by being even stronger than I was before!
