The Contradictions of Mental Health

IMG_2243

When I am depressed I find it hard to talk about it for fear of appearing weak or self-pitying or, worst of all, boring.  So I bottle it up and want to be alone.  Trouble is, loneliness can get me down.

When I am lonely and depressed I choose the bottle for company.  Trouble is, it gets me down when either I can’t afford to drink, or I can and I drink.  Because at the end of the bottle I am still alone.
