Sometimes… Jonny Benjamin

jonny bSometimes I eat cereal for breakfast
Sometimes I eat toast for breakfast
sometimes I eat breakfast on the go

Sometimes I get intrusive thoughts…
I won’t act on them and you probably don’t even notice.
Sometimes I like nothing more than a quiet night in in front of the TV.
Sometimes I get really paranoid
It might seem irrational to upi but it feels pretty real to me
Sometimes I just can’t
Sometimes I just can’t decide what to wear
Sometimes I get delusions and I start thinking something…, or I’m something…

See we’re not all dangerous or violent

I'd rather be openAll the time my name is Jonny Benjamin. 
my favourite colour is blue
I hate mondays, can’t stand mondays.
I love chocolate…
…we’re not that different
our brains might work a bit differently but
I’m just like you.
I’m just human.

you are not your illness
