    You’re Allowed To Be Unhappy

    Along with many people, the Holidays are difficult for me. It seems like no matter what your actual job is, everyone’s second job during December is to be filled with Holiday Cheer™, and those who fail earn rebukes from those around them. In some ways, I think this year looks to be a little easier than in years past, primarily due to the fact that everyone is at least a little depressed due to the Pandemic. So for some that means feeling allowed to let it show this year, instead of pasting on a fake smile and drowning in tinsel. But for others, who may be experiencing true depression for the first time, they may overcompensate by exploding with Festival Merriment™ and expecting others to do the same. So here is my gift to you, though we have never met. I am giving you permission to be sad.

    i don’t know anymore

    things are weird lately. been sleeping a lot. dreaming a lot. been taking meds for weeks now, and i can think better now. however, depression still visits anytime. and it sucks, bc i always think i’m getting better. my consultation is regular and i don’t miss my meds. but a part of me, is holding back. like i don’t wanna heal bc i’ve been living like this for years now. like i’m used to where i am and i don’t know what it’s like, to be in the light.

    and for years i have created my own bubble. standing on this rock of belief that "life is better on my own company", been staying like that for years but lately i’ve been talking to people, strangers, and somehow along the way i got swayed. like a tiny hole in my bubble has been opened. until everyone left and there i was, all alone again. it felt like i’ve fallen from that rock and i’m free falling again on this cliff i created my own. and i knew it. i never have opened myself to begin with.

    because scars can only be as big as the wound cuts deep.

    so i don’t know anymore. i’m hurt, trying to be better yet i fall every single time i try to get up, and yes i wanna be better but scared at the same time

    My struggles #MentalHealth

    For the past 8 years I’ve really struggled with my mental health. I went through something, no one should ever have to go through for 5 whole years. It’s been 2 years now and to be honest, it doesn’t feel real and I’m not sure how to feel. I struggle very badly with flashbacks and sometimes my self harm gets out of control.

    I’ve had about 4 therapists and none have given me a diagnosis to help so I can actually focus on what to do to help me fully. I feel like I’m constantly alone and I have no idea how to control the thoughts in my head, every day I blame myself for what happened and it’s so hard when it wasn’t my fault. Now my mental health is buggered because of it. I just feel so lost.
