“i was so depressed yesterday.”
“i’m so a.d.d. i’m always hyper.”
“i can’t sleep tonight, insomnia.”
“i’m ocd, i like being neat.”
“she’s so psycho, schizo or something.”
“why are you so moody? are you bipolar?”
“ugh this makes me wanna slit my wrists.”
“she’s so anorexic.”
“i would literally kill myself than do that.”

watch your words. don’t use mental illnesses as adjectives. this undermines the struggle of those that deal with mental illnesses everyday. it isn’t easy. find another word. to anybody dealing with a mental illness: you’re strong, your life matters & you will get through this! 💛
