“I’m tired of medication, therapy and fighting. I’m tired of being tired. I’m tired of having a mental illness. I’m tired of everything.”
These are the words of Mighty contributor Brooke Bowie, from her piece, “To the People Who Don’t Understand Why Mental Illness Makes Me so Tired.”
If you can relate, you’re not alone. Maybe your mental illness has you stuck in bed and you can’t muster up the strength to face the day. Maybe overthinking and intrusive thoughts are running you ragged. Whatever is making you tired today, we hope you can find some relief today.
