Mental health issues are no joke. Suffering from anxiety or depression can be absolutely crippling, and can even affect you physically.
Still, laughter is the best medicine and while it might be tough to find much mirth in the midst of a depressive episode, if you can manage to scare up a few chuckles, it really does help a lot.
If you’re having a rough day, week, month, or year, take a look at these funny tweets about mental health.

7. Self care
canceling plans is ok. staying home to cook is ok. disappearing for a bit to get your life together is ok. resurfacing in a foreign country with a new name 10 years later is ok. it's called self care
