Sides for Young Woman A

YOUNG WOMAN A
treat each of the following as separate.

YOUNG WOMAN A
sometimes, my mind just starts racing.
thoughts pile on thoughts. all the things
I’ve ever never done. and then I’m
paralyzed. I just freeze up. that might
last, like, a week.

YOUNG WOMAN A
maybe once a day? at night, when
I’m by myself. I just clean. or re-arrange.
it calms me to move things around.

YOUNG WOMAN A
I went to this boarding school where
we were always doing things. always.
my room was never clean enough,
but if I was cleaning it, then I didn’t
have to be part of planning some big event.

YOUNG WOMAN A
sweatpants. it’s not that sweatpants
are bad. it’s that, out of nowhere,
she just started wearing the same
sweatpants all the time.

YOUNG WOMAN A
she seemed so “perfect.” she wasn’t
perfect, but you know- she was always
our “got it together” friend.

YOUNG WOMAN C
a friend in high school knew my family.
same church. she called us, “the psycho ward.”
that really hurt. I didn’t want to listen,
but the truth was there. and I was so
tired of lying to myself about our mental
health history.

YOUNG WOMAN C
I’ve seen what decades of neglect does
to one’s mental health. it’s been sucky
being honest about my mental health
and learning how to change my behavior
in a productive way. I’ve fallen on my
face more times than I can count.
but I keep plugging along. better now
than later. think it’s impossible to change
now? wait until you’ve ignored your coping
for most of your adult life. ask my mom.
she’s why I do this stuff now. before
I’m too consumed in pain to even
ask questions. unlike other people,
I had to change my coping. I didn’t
want to live in pain. the only way
to do that for me was come clean
about my mental health, and start
taking each difficult step. one at a time.
left foot, right foot.

YOUNG WOMAN C
I just won’t talk about it. you’re not
gonna get me to say anything outside
my room. that’s my room, and no one
can mess with me in there.

YOUNG WOMAN C
some people just won’t get up. I’m
related to one of them. I can be a
great example, I can leave the door
open. but in the past, I’ve had to let go.
no matter what I did, how I did it, how
much I gave- sometimes you can’t help
someone who refuses you at every turn
