To most people I’m fine. I’ve been healthy for a while now and when people talk to me there is no clear indication that I have a mental illness. I just like to remind people that this takes work.
If you have a mental illness you have to learn what it takes to keep yourself healthy. Whether that’s medication, therapy, friends & family, a pet, exercise, a creative outlet, a job, sleep, etc. (My health depends on a combination of these things at all times). Once you figure out what those things are you have to make sure you keep a nice balance of these things in your life in order to maintain your health.
Simply put – If you don’t know what it takes to keep your mind and body healthy you will not be healthy for very long.
