Today I’m writing on this topic for the reason that I have gone through this sound numerous times in my life and I want to get rid of every pain I have put inside me.

“Mental illness is so much more complicated than any pill that any mortal could invent”- Elizabeth Wurtzel.

We could see a broken bone but can’t see mental illness. It’s not a curse, it’s just a state of mind. If a person is having any ailment in their body’s, it must show any symptoms. But a person with mental health issue has no visible symptoms, they just have a head with full of darkness.

They have no fractures nor sprains just a longing for something which is unable to bring out.

This is so strange paradox that now a society can speak aloud about any topics which once were unspeakable, but it still stands vastly silent when it’s about mental sickness.

What is Mental sickness?

Mental sickness is a health difficulty that significantly work on how a person

  • feels
  • believes
  • behaves and
  • binds with other people.

This condition involve changes in emotion, thinking, behaviour or a summation of these.
