A simple rant - not really sure exactly what it is, it's just my feelings.

Living

 

Life is hard. Clearly I am pointing out the obvious, however I do believe it is taken for granted. Life is a miracle, which is a common term used for life. For some people it is a disaster, physical pain, mental issues, everything you can think of, it has happened to somebody in the world. So I’m focusing on the way somebody has to deal with living with anxiety and depression, their day-to-day experiences, the way they act around people. I know that people have worse but when the only thing you can hope for is death, life is hard.

You know that feeling of hopelessness? The feeling that nothing will ever make life better again, nothing you can do will change anything. I know first hand what its like when nobody wants to be around you because you can’t form the words to make a simple joke. When you shake at the thought of being around people who you cant talk to. Anxiety attacks in class, hyperventilating at the thought of having to do something that may put you in harms way. Not to mention the other health issues, which originate from anxiety. Another thing I personally suffer from is IBS, and no it doesn’t mean I just shit myself all the time, I am in severe pain whenever my anxiety is triggered, which is when I leave the house. People become house-ridden because they cannot shake this horrid disease that is invading people’s lives.

So what I am trying to explain in my rant is don’t take someone’s ‘awkwardness’ to heart. Don’t mistreat someone if they cannot form a simple conversation, if all they can do is laugh and pretend they don’t feel like the only way to stop pain is to kill themselves. When the only way to get out of the house in the morning is to take tablets to stop the spasms that are making you want to crawl up in a ball and wish for death. So basically what I’m trying to say is don’t take people for granted, don’t take what you have, how you can enjoy happiness and not dwell on what’s to come ahead. Life is hard, and it always will be, just don’t give up, don’t wait for death, tell someone before it’s too late.
