Feeling Festive With Mental Illness
Mental Disorders don’t just take a break during the holidays, in fact for many they can get worse. That was something that took me a long time to understand because as a kid, the Holidays were the best time of the year, I mean no school, who doesn’t look forward to that?
It happened to me. When I was twelve I was riding the school bus home after a long day of seventh grade. I put my earbuds in, connected them to my iPod, and tried to block out the world with the sweet music of Katy Perry and Taylor Swift. Just as we neared my stop, the boy sitting in front of me turned around and deliberately touched my breast. At first, I was shocked, I was stunned, I didn’t know what to do as his two friends laughed around me, their high-pitched, carefree laughter pierced through the music and hit me harder than a punch in the gut.
