Some months ago, I started drawing my thoughts as an person struggling with generalized anxiety, panic attacks and depression.

I started these drawings because I'm really bad at explaining what's inside my head, and explaining by drawing has always been a lot easier for me.

The people who go out and announce mental illness just want attention. The people who try to be perfect couldn't possibly want less attention.

And when someone is on a all time low , no matter how many times you tell them that they are not a burden and they are loved very much . They still don't think they are

It is hard. I know I don't have a right to complain when I'm not the one struggling with these things, but it hurts to see friends sinking into darkness. And not being able to do anything about it. I'm sorry.

I feel like I've been guilty of acting like this. I tell people I understand, but I'm not sure I do.
