Hi there, friend 🤗🌸

I just read an article on why weekends can be hard when you live with a mental illness… and it was pretty interesting, so just wanted to share it with you 😊 

It was written in 2018 by Gabrielle R on The Mighty and she really nails it and explains how many feel during the weekend.

Because living with a mental illness, weekends can be a particularly hard and triggering time of the week.

Just knowing that others feel the same way can make it feel more OK and make the next weekend less overwhelming.

Have a lovely day
