Illness + Creature = Mental Picture Battle

Depression Demons

Anxiety Aliens

Bipolar Boogeymen

Yes, each mental illness I deal with becomes a weird/evil creature with the same starting letter. I’m strange like that. But it makes me feel like I’m battling something I can picture.

If I didn’t do what I just said, I would feel like I’m battling someone with an invisibility cloak on. I can’t see them. I don’t know where they are. I can’t protect myself. I can’t rally the army and warn them of the coming attack.

But with these mental pictures,  I can stab at their hearts and cut limbs off and decapitate them. I feel like I can actually do something.

The war will never be over, but it will be one that I rise to victory with my army in battles.
