I recently had a fairly devastating nervous breakdown. This past year has been very hard on me. Since August I have hardly been able to leave my bed for various reasons and I’ve found myself in this situation once again. It gets… tiring. I haven’t been well and I’ve been too embarrassed and afraid to ask for help. Instead I’ve lied and gave people false optimism, when...

I need to talk to you guys
I need to be honest. I’ve been lying a lot for the past couple of weeks. I can’t even say how many times I’ve said that I am okay. I’m not. I am not okay.

strangedayshavefoundme666: mansplained: I’ve been struggling with chronic depression and generalized/social anxiety for many years (though I’m only 19), and I’ve only just recently been seeing doctors and a therapist about it. I’ve ceased therapy for the time being, however. My therapist at the time was a woman, who was generally very kind and understanding (though on the whole not very...
Congratulations; you made it through another day!...
timelordy-teganbreann: Your record for longest amount of consecutive days without dying has reached a personal best. Well done, you.
people who are able-bodied: Okay so we have illnesses that leave most sufferers unable to do daily tasks daily, let alone work and earn a living? So, let's make any hope of feeling better cost one million dollars per week, all physical therapy four million dollars. Also, if you want to see any specialist, a further ten million dollars. Oh and when they try for any income support, let's deny their pain and leave them penniless. Yep.

I don’t know if I give girls their fair share, but I aspire to, especially after noticing that boys are willing to use their greater share of teachers’ attention to get girls who they feel aren’t being quiet and...
