help I’m having emotions about a cartoon antidepressant trying to be useful


yes but look at it, it cares about her and just wants to help her be able to function. It’s like “I know you’re sad. here, I’ll help you.”

LIKE OKAY THOUGH can I explain why this is exceedingly brilliant??  Because when anti-depressants work right, that’s what they DO.  They don’t make you happy or emotionless or unhealthy in any way, they make you FUNCTIONAL.  They make it so that a depressed person who can barely get out of bed can start to support themselves again and more importantly, start to THINK for themselves again without the permeating presence of depression.

Depression is a cyclical disease, that tells you to think a certain way, and, because you’re depressed, you generally believe it, and then things get worse and worse.  The ONLY thing anti-depressants do is to STOP that cycle in its tracks!!  Which is something to be ecstatic about and celebrated, even if you don’t realize it at the time, because when you’re depressed, getting out of bed is climbing Mount Everest.  Antidepressants help stop that cycle so that one day soon, getting out of bed can JUST be getting out of bed.  They don’t even expedite the recovery process in most cases, they just make recovery POSSIBLE IN THE FIRST PLACE.  So this little guy is portrayed with a fuckton more accuracy than I ever expected from a commercial.

It’s back and adorable

My Birthday

So, as most of you know today was my 19th birthday, I honestly never thought I’d be alive to see this day come. There were so many days when I didn’t want to wake up the next morning because I didn’t think I could face another day, but somehow I found the strength to carry on and continue to live even if the only thing I could accomplish was opening my eyes and continuing to breath. My life hasn’t been easy by any means, I’ve struggled with self-harm, depression, anxiety, abuse, and eating disorders. I’ve hated myself and I’ve relapsed. But, I also found hope and I found help. I’ve met amazing people that have helped me through so much and have made it possible that I was alive to celebrate today. I can’t thank them enough for their support, love, time, words, and efforts. You guys are amazing and wonderful people who I love dearly and I owe my life to. Thank you, thank you, thank you. krispy-bits themastervainglorious disneyprincess-kaitlin themadmancomplex ash1309 and anyone else who has been there for me when I needed advice, hope, encouragement, or a shoulder to cry on. I wouldn’t be in this place without you.

"Eating and self care aren’t things you need to earn. You deserve food, rest, and happiness no matter who you are or what your past is."
"Don’t convince yourself that you are not strong because you cannot lift a weight. You wake up every morning, you get out of bed, and you fight the monsters in your head. If that isn’t strong I don’t know what is."


instead of spending so much time assuring other people that “asexuals can have sex to please their partner” why don’t we spend time assuring asexuals that they are under no obligation to have sex with their partners to please them, and that if their partner cant respect their sexuality, they don’t deserve them.




So, one of my followers just found me in Walgreen’s and I have to say she was really sweet. I feel bad for any of youths actually meet me in person because you all seem to think I’m really cool and stuff and I’m really not. So, yeah. I’m sorry.

Maren, I have a story for you.

Does it involve an Amscot

I’ve heard the Amscot story.
It is endlessly entertaining.

At first I though this was a joke

Don’t ignore this Tumblr

Yet they still do even when it’s right in their face.

This reminds me of how a friend of mine was abused by the mother of his child. She was mentally unstable and used to berate him constantly and would smack him in the head all the time. It really pissed me off. Then one night she threw hot coffee in his face and tried to stab him with a screwdriver. The cops hauled him off to jail because she made up a sob story that painted herself as the victim. 

Once he left her, he stayed with me and it was a nightmare. She stalked him and me. She would drive by my house obsessively at all hours of the day and night (her muffler made a weird sound so I know it was her). She started showing up at my job, showing up at the places I frequented around town, and filling up my voicemail with dead air. The cops were no help.

One day she got bold enough to talk her way into my home by conning my elderly grandmother, whom I was taking care of, while I was out. She went in my room and went through my stuff (creepy), then found him napping on the couch and attacked him. My grandmother witnessed the whole thing. He grabbed her by the arms, forced her out the front door, and locked it. The cops were called again. They said they’d go and ‘talk’ to her.

The next day we were watching a movie and there was a knock at the door. The police had come to arrest him. She filed a complaint against him and shown off some bruises on her arms from the altercation that she swore were completely unprovoked. My grandmother saw the whole thing since she was in the living room too and testified on his behalf. He still ended up serving jail time.
No one takes male domestic violence victims seriously. They only see males as perpetrators.
