World Mental Health today

Today is world Mental Health Day.

Many people will romanticise it, tell stories overcoming, and of courage in adversity

I see mental illness as one who comes to steal, kill and destroy.

I trained as a nurse, mental illness took that from me.
I had my own business, but mental illness has stopped me working.
I am a mum, and my mental illness has affected my kids too.

Unlike many other illness, mental illness has no cure. You just have to live with it. Yes there is medication but in my book it rarely makes a difference.

This world mental health day I just want to say that Mental Illness is shit.
