I Wish I Could Take a Break From My Mental Illness

Reading now: 222

Summer is officially here and my Instagram feed is full of pictures of people on vacation — little snapshots of them lying by the pool, looking at an ocean view, soaking in the relaxation.

I’m not jealous of their actual vacation (well, maybe a little bit), what I’m envious of is their ability to escape. Living with mental illness is a full-time job.

There are no vacation days or time off. There’s no bonus pay for working overtime. Instead, if you’re like me, you’re just stuck with your symptoms 24/7.
