Today I realized something that really sucks about mental illness. (Like we need to add to the list)
You can’t run away from your problems like other people can.
Owe too much back child support to your baby mama? Flee the state.
Meth lab blew up? Move a couple hollers down.
Your boss blacklisted you for drinking on the job? Move.
Your past is constantly haunting you in the small town you live in? Run away. (And then move back and prove the whole town wrong and eventually make a Lifetime movie anout it)
My problem is in my brain. I am my problem. No matter how fast I run or how far I go, I can’t outrun myself.
