Often we don’t pay attention to a mental illness until we’ve fed it and fed it and it’s grown so large that it fills up every room we walk into and we’re always standing in a stinking pile of symptoms it keeps shitting on top of us.
It’s time to get preventative and proactive with mental illnesses. The illness-first approach doesn’t work. It’s like waiting for a heart attack before you start eating healthy and exercising. Don’t wait for an illness to get so bad you can’t do anything but deal with it. Stop feeding your mental illness elephant before it crushes you.
