Does everyone have a voice in their head?
Or is that just me?
I close my eyes to rest my brain but my mind opens and leaves my body.
Is that just me?
Is it a voice in my head or my consciousness guiding me?
Do you have more than one?
or is that just me?
Is what you know normal or is it because that’s you?
What if you found out that the way you think was not “normal”…
Why do you get to be called sane.
We’re all different…I don’t know why it’s so bad if we’re not the same.
Me here. I wrote this with the intention of drawing attention to the stigma of mental health through the mind of someone with anxiety and depression. I’m on the latest brand of antidepressant that my doctor has prescribed to me. I sweat a disgusting amount of times per day (I walk everywhere, my anxiety makes it hard for me to drive, no license). However, what I hate the most is the uncomfortable silence that fills the air when an antidepressant commercial comes on and I’m with friends. The main thing I want taken away from this piece is just how real of questions these are…I guess I’m losing sight of who I really am. I’ve always been introspective and I guess another good question is, does it even make any sense to “normal” people.
