It’s a blurry out of focus picture. I took this picture because it shows how I see the world everyday. Blurry, out of focus. I can’t concentrate. I’m there, but I can’t really see.
Even in class, that’s how it is. I’m so focused on everything else that’s going on around me, [and] I can’t focus on what’s in font of me.
Others know I’m there, but they can’t see me. They just see my outline.
With mental illness I feel people relate to that. You can’t focus on things when your mind is going crazy. There are so many other things going on that if it’s right in front of you can’t understand it.
People should just be more understanding. Try and understand what’s going on inside their heads. Try and understand them and be patient with people. I feel this way mostly in my really big classes. You can’t really change that though.
