Mental pain ranks pretty high up there as one of the worst things ever. Feeling down, terrible, invisible, ignored, misunderstood, heartbroken or powerless is literally excruciating. It weighs down on you in the worst way. And it bleeds into your daily life – interactions with other people, getting shit done on a day to do, hell, even eating, becomes such a task that you end up wanting to with draw from it all.
The last time I had severe mental pain, I gained like 50 pounds and didn’t see anyone I loved for several months on end. It was atrocious. But real.
