"I'm Tired"

Written by: Kimberly Whitmon

Published by: Rallyup Magazine


It means just that… WE MFN TIIIRRREEEDDD!!!.. But not like I need sleep tired.


More like, I need PEACE, tired.


I’m tired… of the constant negative thoughts, the incessant worrying about everything that has happened and everything that will.


I’m tired… of having to take medication, of forgetting to take my medication and then having to readjust to that medication. Let’s not get into getting tired of trying to find the right cocktail to begin with.


I’m tired… of getting overstimulated. Tired of isolating myself from my loved ones and leaving relationships in the wake of my path of destruction.


I’m tired… of constantly having to pay attention to my mood. I have to be hyper-vigilant about every damn thing. What I’m doing, eating, and drinking and how is it going to affect my mood.


I’m tired of having a morphed perception of my body, my abilities, myself; obsessing over details that people probably don’t notice. And then NEVER forgetting the embarrassing feelings that come along with obsession.


I’m tired of having to act like I’m ok cuz… you have one lil funky a$$ episode…and now every little tear might be cause for hospitalization.


These are just a few things that we get ‘tired’ of.


Just know when a person with any type of mental illness tells you they’re tired, just know they are probably NOT talking about sleep 💚
