Super incredibly maddening thing about mental illness:

Fighting your ass off to live a normal life and function as well as you can, and instead of getting credit and having people be proud of you for all the efforts you’re making, having people use your apparently normal behavior as a reason to invalidate you and think you weren’t that sick to begin with.

It takes a lot of badassery to act this normal, but the effort is all invisible 

I’m so happy to see all the comments from people feeling validated by this. I didn’t realize so many people also felt this way. 

You are a badass

You know how hard you fight

You can validate yourself and remind yourself that you are doing your very best

It is OKAY that your best is not the same as others’ bests

I needed to remember this reminder from myself today. It’s ok to struggle and it’s ok to congratulate yourself for fighting and you’re allowed to be hurt when people don’t recognize how hard you’re trying

She can’t get around without help the pain is enough to make her want to die.

1 dollar. $1 would help. If everyone gave $1 she could get her dog to the vet. Even a tiny little bit counts and makes a difference.

This girl is genuinely the sweetest kindest person I have ever met. Her name is @lifeasitoccurs on twitter. She is recovering from an eating disorder and self harm and is an amazing support to others who have also been abused. She has talked me through flashbacks and calmed me during panic attacks and been generally awesome and selfless. 

She is incredibly sick. She struggles with chronic health problems and has horrible chronic pain that she can’t afford ANY treatment for. She can’t get around without help because of an unknown new condition sh’es develoing, but cannot afford a single doctor visit right now, much less the expensive tests. She’s in SO much pain and has had to become homeschooled because of this. She rescued a dog from an abusive life and this sweet puppy has a UTI she can’t afford antibiotics for.

If you donate she will be so so touched by it. She has the most grateful, appreciative heart. She deserves relief more than ANYONE. 

I’m hoping to do a bake sale or similar type of fundraiser to get money to send. 

The situation is getting a lot worse and I’m genuinely scared for her.

I’m sorry about not posting much, but at the same time I’m not sorry sorry because I’ve been on strict bed rest and decided to focus on taking care of myself and not straining to focus on things that are too much right now. I promise I will be back to regular frequent posts again soon. Mentally I’m so just so blank and numb that I’m really out of touch with myself and feelings. I usually have post anesthesia depression so this is normal and will start improving soon.

If you’re waiting for a hero to step in, take you away, and make things better, then I’ve got to tell you they’re already here. The hero is the badass part of you that wants to go live your damn life. 

You contain too many nuanced and varied parts to not house a hero somewhere in your head.

When people say purging won’t hurt them I want to tell them every ugly detail of every pain and illness it has caused me. I want to make it graphic and explicit so they see it vividly. I want to make them look at the harsh reality until they can see that it is self destructive. 

But instead I just warn them and recite the textbook information. I’m scared of triggering people with my details and I get anxious over exposing the reality I lived and the damage I carry. 

I want to say it all. 

But I want to be silent forever too.

Anonymous asked: This might be a really really dumb idea especially considering your friend is having serious health issues, but plasma donation pays a fair amount. Again, not even sure if this is possible with her age and health. Maybe look into it...

Sadly with the illnesses that she and I have, we are both banned from donating blood, organs, etc. Maybe I could find others who would be willing to do things like that to raise money for her

Anonymous asked: People are disgusting. Ignore the anon. You're being an amazing friend. I cant afford to help but im sending prayers and healing energy to you, your friend, and her pup.

Thank you, I appreciate that, and she appreciates the care even if you can’t give anything. I’m wracking my brain trying to figure out other ways to get her funds. I’m so worried

awholenewwor1d asked: To the anon. Stop following them if you are unhappy! We want the friend to live and get money for help!

Thank you <3

Anonymous asked: Would you stop spamming us with donation requests? I'm sure she's a nice girl, but people who can't afford the upkeep and medical bills of a pet should be responsible enough to not get one to avoid torturing them when they are sick.

Dude, you have no clue about the situation. The girl is one of my best friends and is basically dying. You can’t predict getting hit by a new illness and suddenly having all sorts of medical bills that you never planned on. She can’t buy her dog’s antibiotics right now because she’s got biopsies and MRIs and other crap she needs for herself. If you have a problem with me being scared for my friend and not wanting her to die as she slowly loses the ability to move, then please unfollow me, because I’m going to keep asking people to help her because she can’t even walk anymore and can’t pay for a damn wheelchair.

I’m getting so worried for her. She’s getting sicker by the minute and it’s getting really serious

1 dollar. $1 would help. If everyone gave $1 she could get her dog to the vet. If you gave $1 my friend could be closer to getting the medical care her life depends on. Even a tiny little bit counts and makes a difference.

Anonymous asked: How do you stop being so emotional? Like everything affects me so much, I get upset and cry over everything because I take it the wrong way and ugh. Help?

Usually when I get emotional it’s because I’ve been holding everything in for too long. 

When it comes to reacting I just try to avoid jumping to conclusions and taking things personally. I try to figure out where the other person is coming from and what they really meant. If you have more emotions than some people that’s okay
