Dealing with mental illness you surround your self and notice things that are different from other people.
For me , it’s dates.
I stopped cutting on this date , relapsed on this date , went this long without relapsing , last took my meds on this date , started a new med on this date , therapy on this date, medication follow up on this date .
My illness is about dates .
I was molested 5 years ago, and I can’t remember the date it happened. It was nearing fall.
Not being able to remember the date may seem dumb, to obsess around , but I want the date , and will never have it .
