#TheUnseen is when mental and/or emotional fatigue leads to withdrawing, and depressed thought loops. It is when "I'm tired or "I don't feel good" mean so much more. It is when you can't even handle being around the people you love. It is when you wish you could confide in someone, but you can't let anyone see that part of you. It is when people think you're okay because you can laugh and smile. It is when you know the good feeling behind that laugh or smile won't last, no matter how hard you try to hold on to it.

Inspired to Stabilize
By: Kryss Jobes
So, this year I want to make changes in how I live my life. For the past few years, I have told myself I will do this, but it never lasts. It is all too easy to get distracted and put off important tasks, or to miss one day and let yourself become utterly discouraged. Once this happens, it can be nearly impossible to recover.
Living with mental illness is hard enough without outside interference, but no one can avoid the outside interference of everyday life. Whether you work full time, go to school, have hectic family lives, or any combination of these things; they all add more weight to what you’re dealing with already when you wake up.
I’m 30 years old, and I go by the name of Kryss. I was born in Texas and raised mostly by my grandmother, but other family members helped as well. I have a significant other and a daughter, and I feel like the world’s worst mother at times. I also have three cats that are both therapeutic and counterproductive at the same time. I love my family, they are extremely important to me even though they make things more difficult sometimes.
