If you could describe your disorder in one sentence or multiple, or as one metaphor... what would it be?

I'll go first.... I'm bipolar 2 and have GAD. So....
I feel like a ship out at sea with no direction and absolutely no warning of any oncoming storms. I'm blind, lost, alone, and content with that.

Ok my first post here ,one word to describe my illness now thats hard but Id have to use more ,The living dead , that describes me due to my illness , every day I try and at the end Im still dead , been ill for nearly 11 years now and still hoping that I will learn to live in the outside world but when I got off the bus of life I never truly got back on again ,from being an outgoing friendly person Im a recluse who has learned to act rather than bore others with my true feelings, caring for others feelings has become my main objective and being too worthless to deserve being better is always on my mind.

Where flowers bloom
It's like one long, dreary, rainy day. It's like a desolate wasteland where everything is hopeless, pointless, and dead. It's like a big, drab, abandoned house in the woods in a place where the sun almost never shines.

If I have woken up not disappointed I didn't die, it's going to be a good day.
