You don’t have to be inpatient to have a mental illness.
You don’t have to have had therapy to have had a mental illness.
You don’t have to be on medication to have a mental illness.
Stop thinking you aren’t ‘sick’ enough to get well because you haven’t had the treatment others have had.
That’s your illness talking!
Your struggles are still struggles and you deserve to be well!
