People with ADHD tend to be very, very different from one another. That’s because the condition, which has a common underlying cause, has as an end result something that is very personal – if you are interested in something, you can do it, and otherwise may find it extremely hard. As such, the condition of ADHD can be found in a very wide variety of people – from celebrities and dancers, to mathematicians and plumbers. Gurevich, David (2010-05-24).

Hopefully, this blog will be a little bit more active in the future. I’m heading into midterm season here, but maybe some new stuff from me. I’ll be looking for suggestions, and trying to go through my asks stuff.

honestly, this is so important though. at 18, i had been depressed for so long that i was afraid of what would happen if it were to get treatment. “if this part of me goes away, who am i? will i still be the same me?” i was legitimately afraid of getting help for myself. your depression may shape you, but it doesn’t define you.

THIS IS SO FUCKING VALIDATING I CAN’T EVEN.

GETTING HELP DOES NOT MEAN LOSING CREATIVITY.

Let me repeat that, in case you weren’t clear: getting help - therapy, medication, self-care - does NOT mean losing creativity. I know too many fabulous creative people who lose themselves and their art to this nonsense.

If someone were to die at the age of 63 after a lifelong battle with MS or Sickle Cell, we’d all say they were a “fighter” or an “inspiration.” But when someone dies after a lifelong battle with severe mental illness and drug addiction, we say it was a tragedy and tell everyone “don’t be like him, please seek help.” That’s bullshit. Robin Williams sought help his entire life. He saw a psychiatrist. He quit drinking. He went to rehab. He did this for decades. That’s HOW he made it to 63. For some people, 63 is a fucking miracle. I know several people who didn’t make it past 23 and I’d do anything to have 40 more years with them.

One of the more helpful and insightful things I’ve seen about depression/suicide in the last couple of days.

Your mental and physical health comes before anything. Exams can be redone. Your life can’t. Don’t stress. It will be okay. Concentrate on yourself. Your mental and physical health comes before anything. (via crimson-and-bittersweet)

Be kind to yourself. Stop telling yourself that whatever you are struggling with “should” be easy. If something is hard for you, it is hard for you. There are probably Reasons, though those may just be how you are wired. Acknowledge these things. When you finish something hard, be proud! Celebrate a little.

And really, just stop saying “should” to yourself about your thoughts and feelings in any context. You feel how you feel. The things in your head are the things in your head. You can’t change either directly through sheer force of will. You can only change what you do. Stop beating yourself up for who and what you are right now–it isn’t productive. Focus on moving forward.
