To my fellows on the battlefield

(I am not referring to war here, at least, not the kind of war people first imagine)

I want to send out a message of hope to my mentally ill compatriots, especially those who cannot speak about their illness for any number of reasons.

Keep fighting.

Stay strong.

I wish you the best, and hope that some day you can be relieved of the battlefield situation. But if you never do… you have my respect. And I hope that means something.

One thought on “To my fellows on the battlefield

    You know, William Styron actually used military terminology to describe having depression: the condition of the walking wounded. Because mental illness is invisible and people with mental illness are expected to function like everyone else.
