Living with a mental illness

i sit here
panic and fear
ripple through my body
My mind whirs
My eyes blurr
Tears fall
I try to call
But no one hears me
I am alone
Feeling forlorn
Life with a mental illness
Isnt easy!

  1. I have bipolar disorder and just finished a second visit to a mental health facility in 12 years. I had said that I wasn’t going back. But I was there for 5 days. I felt a lot like these words.
