When you live with a mental illness, you fight a lifelong battle

8f574e56c5e8df5e764c00227bf483e3 “When you live with a mental illness, you fight a lifelong battle. When you’re medicated, staying away from booze and drugs, and doing other things to take care of yourself (sleep, exercise, etc.), you’re winning the battle. The mental illness cannot control you, because you have learned to control it.

But when you don’t do those things, and unfortunately sometimes even when you do, the mental illness begins to regain control, and you start to suffer. That’s when the demons come out.” (Kate Dolan, Psychology Today)
