Partly Tired Seriously Disturbed

Mental Health Matters

Mind is a forest

Living inside PTSD, it's a constant battle

Trying to hold it all together, but feeling rattled

Memories haunt me, like a ghost the night

I try to escape, but they cling on tight

Nothing matters, the world feels gray

Depressed and worn out, day by day

Partly tired and seriously disturbed

I feel like I'm running backwards, my mind blurred

Screaming out for help, but it goes unheard

Living inside PTSD, every moment is absurd.

My art is a revelation

dedication to the medication

I am crazy have you not heard

That is absurd.

Partly tired and slighty disturbed

    I stand with you, Wayne. I suffer from PTSD, and often, what those people see is not what it is. You are not crazy. You are a person with feelings who has been through a lot of trauma. Your story resonates with me, and it explains the struggle we face very clearly.

    You're not alone, brother. It's exhausting. When I read this line, "I am crazy have you not heard", I couldn't help but think: yep, crazy when it suits them and faking when it suits them. And I'm guessing most of us have some "them" in our lives. Not the most helpful reactions, though much too common.

    Wayne Ince your words convey a raw honesty and vulnerability that is both powerful and poignant.
