    I saw my abusers dad in the supermarket yesterday and walked right past him. I realised when he stood up who he was. I was so scared. This is the father of the guy who abused me. This is the guy who got a church to lie for his son because he has power in the community. This is the guy who’s a massive voice in education in the United Kingdom, and some how got his abusive son a job in a school as a teacher. This is the guy who got his abusive son a radio show. This guy knows his son has abused several girls. This guy is the reason I won’t get justice.

    I feel like my posts are starting to appear attention seeking

    Either that, or this place really hates alterhumans/otherkin folk. Not even a reply back when I correct them after explaining what that means. No hearts.. Am I seriously that judged for identifying as nonhuman in a non-pessimistic and spiritual way?? Is everyone going to deny that I’m otherkin and just label me as human anyway?? Is that too “cringey” for everyone?? Because that is not the type of place I want to be it, and if’s that so…

    I guess this place isn’t for me then. Just to think I actually found a decent place, I’m wrong. I always end up wrong.

    If it’s not then.. I’m sorry if they appear attention seeking. I swear that is not the purpose. I just hoped that I wasn’t alone. Now I feel even more alone than before…

    On the other side of fear

    <p>On the other side of fear</p>
    Community Voices

    I just wish people wouldn’t blow me off. Or act like my feelings are too big. Or get so uncomfortable when I try express what I am going through that they get off the phone or rush the conversation. I get it’s uncomfortable, unpleasant, scary, taboo. Whatever word you want. But it is happening and it is happening to me. I need my people. They act like they can’t handle it but what about me? They may say sound selfish. But sorry your feelings are uncomfortable but I am planning my funeral so my parents know my wishes should that happen. Like get a backbone and be there!

    Friend: some people can’t handle death… they can’t comprehend it.

    I can’t either so it is frustrating when trying to process and people are like I don’t this well. Well **** you! I need my people. That is my biggest fear about dying. Not having my people, being without my twin, who will comfort mom who is having a nervous break down, who will take care of dad while he is aging, who will be there to hug me in the darkness? And the darkness isn’t here yet and I am already alone…

    How do you bring yourself to dill out an end of life packet?

    I got mine in the mail yesterday just in case I turn critical before I can get to an out of state hospital with a specialist…. I got COVID in May and developed QT Long Syndrome so all psych meds stopped, except Elavil. June I had a stroke that left me weak on one side, not able to write or speak properly, or even more around well. Few weeks later I had a Dystonia episode that almost killed me. Elavil was stopped. My Gastroparesis was continually getting worse since COVID and because my heart meds are not option at this point. I now I have a PEG tube but still pleasure eat some. In two weeks I will be getting a PEG-J to completely by pass my stomach. I am in the hospital more than I am home so it feels like it. All I do is sleep. Life is hard and a long life just isn’t the cards anymore. My end of life packet came in the mail yesterday. Five Wishes. This is my PARENTS know my final wishes and planning a memorial service. It seems so backwards. I am only 33…. How did I reach this point? What did I do or not do? How in the world can I fix this when my state won’t even help me?! No idea how long I have to wait for Houston but my body is giving up and I am afraid I won’t make it to that appt. But I cannot bring myself to fill out this packet. Feels like giving up but my parents need to know these things….. #Gastroparesis #FeedingTube #CriticalCare #scared #how #why #doesitgetbetter #endoflife #longcovid #Stroke #LongQTsyndrome #HeartHealth #MajorDepression #Schizophrenia #Schizophrenic #Anxiety #PTSD #MedicalPtsd

    Looking to relate anonymously

    Hi! My name is Amaryllis (not really, but on here, yes). I googled how to deal with depression thoughts upon waking up and found this article.. I’m not doing well.. but this mornings thought haunts me all day. Just checking this out to see how it works before I share details.
    Bonus - my ocd has gotten worse but it’s comforting. When it’s not driving me mad that is.

    Another day, another trip to the hospital, another procedure…the fun never ends. Being what I call a “professional patient” helps but it’s still scary
