I’m Angry

I’m angry that I have to fight to get the help, the treatment, the support that I need.
I’m angry that I have anxiety.
I’m angry that I can’t always control my own behaviour.
I’m angry that I feel like I’ve let my family down, even though I know it’s not my fault.
I’m angry that I can’t do the things I want.
I’m angry I don’t have more friends.
I’m angry that people don’t understand.
I’m angry that there’s nobody who really understands.
I’m angry that I’m depressed.
I’m angry that it’s me.
I’m angry that I sometimes don’t understand myself.
I’m even angry at myself for feeling angry.

For the record, I’m fine. This is a poem that I wrote to attempt to express the anger that I sometimes feel as someone who suffers with a range of mental health problems.
