"in honor of may being mental health awareness month and also as part of buddy project’s you are campaign, i want to share my story. when i was a junior in high school, about 17 years old, i began to notice that something internally felt wrong. i had a constant uneasy feeling. i started to notice that i wasn’t as confident as i was before, i started second thinking every single thing that i did. i wasn’t answering as many questions in class because when i wanted to first i had to rehearse and repeat in my head exactly what i was going to say. fast forward two years and i am a freshman in college. i noticed that my uneasy feeling intensified. i never answered any questions, i never wanted to publicly talk, i wanted to make myself as small and unnoticeable as possible. i would go to the main dining facility on campus, swipe my i.d. and immediately leave because i could feel the onset of a panic attack. my grades were suffering and i missed out on a lot of opportunities because of my mental illness. whenever i tried to talk to someone about it they just told me “college is scary for everyone” or “you’re just homesick.” from following various accounts on social media, i began to understand more about what i was going through: anxiety disorder. i learned that i wasn’t alone, 1 in 5 people have a mental illness and we still aren’t talking about it. the stigmas that surround mental illness and suicide are detrimental. we need to #endthestigma and start conversations about it. i am no longer letting my anxiety stop me and i will use my voice to speak for those that cannot. i will speak these words to myself and to those that need them:
you are loved
you are strong
you are capable
you are valid
you are more than your mental illness" -skylar (@flowers_in_the_skylar )
