YOU KNOW WHAT WOULD BE SO KAWAII? IF [my favorite character] HAD ANXIETY DISORDER AND SPENT EVERY NIGHT CURLED UP IN A BALL HYPERVENTILATING THROUGH A PANIC ATTACK AND FEELING LIKE HE’S GOING TO DIE.
Fuck off, anon. Really, fuck off. There is nothing cute about what I suffer with. I am not PROUD of the fact that I can’t do things I used to enjoy. I do NOT find it cute or sweet or beautifully tragic that people like me are ending their lives every day because they can’t deal with the pressure of it anymore. It impacts every facet of my life, strains my relationships, and acts as a constant obstacle and stumbling block.
You’re proud of who you are? You go. Be proud. But recognize that there are a crapload of other people in this world who are SUFFERING with mental illness — are in PAIN every day of their lives — and do not appreciate having their illness trivialized and treated like a woobie show.
