Too emotional involved 

I usually like to be more upbeat or comical but lately, I’ve been having a hard time. Recently my loved ones have been under attack and it hurts me to see them suffer. I start to feel useless because I can’t do anything to take away their problems. These are normal emotions but for those suffering from Bipolar Disorder, OCD and other physical problems it can quickly wear you down.

I’m not saying I need help or encouragement – although I will not deny I could use it – but that I understand.

We may not look sympathetic, or like we are paying attention because we are fighting our own internal battles of how to handle your suffering.
