…a friend on an instant messenger: good morning! How are you today?
…me: (thinking: what’s so good about this morning?) I’m doing OK… how are you?
The friend replies and says he/she’s doing good… the conversation goes on with a usual chit chat… but I think to myself… what if I’d told the truth? That I am feeling miserable, that I am seeing things that aren’t there, that I am hearing things that no one else can hear, that I feel I am going to lose my mind completely… that I hate myself…that I hate my life… that I don’t care anymore… and I can’t really pinpoint why I feel like that… I don’t know what or if I can to do to make it stop….
