My Life… with mental health issues also comes with tention headaches.

My tention headaches are like a bad migraine. But it last for a week or two. The doctors give me shots to stop the pain. But it only works sometimes. I normally need more than one shot. I’m getting use to the pain in a way. I’m learning what helps and what makes them worse. Such as an over the counter medicine sudafed helps eliviate the pressure. I made it through a week of work with the pain. Until I went to urgent care. I just couldn’t get over the headache with out that shot.

Life sometimes sucks like that. But when you start feeling better. It’s such a freeing feeling. A relief.

If Your Struggling…

; Asking for help does not make you weak. Telling someone you aren’t coping isn’t a sign of failure. Needing some time out of school or away from work does not mean you are ‘skiving’. Not being able to have a job doesn’t make you ‘lazy’. Going inpatient is not an admission of hopelessness, it’s one of the bravest things you can do. Do not be shamed in to believing you aren’t worthy by a skewed, archaic society who puts beauty before happiness, mental stamina before before mental health and physical appearance before physical illness -a society who blames short skirts on sexual assault, ignores mens mental health and is more likely to demonise a victim of paedophilia before it demonises the paedophile. Saying that you are struggling and need support does not make you an embarrasment, it makes you the strongest damn person in the room.
