Day after day we go through the motions.

Day #1: We get up, get dressed, make breakfast, go to work or get the kids to school, come home, make dinner, do homework with kids, clean up dinner, etc. By the end of the evening, we are so tired that all we want to do is crash. So we go to bed.

Day #2: We get up, get dressed, make breakfast, go to work or get the kids to school, come home, make dinner, do homework with kids, clean up dinner, etc. By the end of the evening, we are so tired that all we want to do is crash. So we go to bed.

Our routine becomes engrained in us so much that if anything disrupts our routine, it can throw us completely off.

But what if every hour of every day was like a disrupted moment in our routine?
What if every minute of every day was spent trying to appreciate the peace you feel now, praying you still feel the same a minute later?Not knowing if in one minute you were going to have a panic attack, or feel manic, or severely depressed, suicidal, want to cut yourself, feel totally and hopelessly alone for no reason in a room full of people?

Have you ever felt that way? Do you feel like that now? Are you aware that the people around you might look "normal" on the outside, but they having an internal conflict like nothing you have ever experienced?

I'm here to tell you that mental illness is like the interruption in our engrained routine every minute of every day. Depending on what type of mental illness you have, you literally can be counting the minutes until your next interruption.
