Who Am I?

Who am I? I am often sad, anxious, and missing my eyebrows. I am often described as strange because I have a certain routine and order to my life that is unnatural. I have problems, just like the rest of the world. My problems are often misunderstood though. Yes, I have depression, anxiety, trichotillomania, and OCD. Yes, I have mental problems. However, I am Not a mental problem. I am not depressed. I am not OCD. I am not defined by my mental illnesses. My problems are just a small part of who I really am. I am a human. I deserve to be treated like a human. I am no different from anyone else.

One thought on “Who Am I?

  1. After living with mental illness for awhile, it’s hard to think of other things that define you. But there are many other things.
    Judging from your posts, you’re a teacher. You’re a daughter. You work at an amusement park. You’re many other things. Yes, you have mental health issues. But that’s a small part of you.
