That’s it. That’s the book.

This is so relevant to me right now.
Asking someone not to cry is never OK.

Hi peoples :)

Just a short note to let people know that on Monday (today/tomorrow depending on where you live), I’m going to be doing an interview about Escher Girls with feminist/women’s radio program ”Yeah, What She Said” on 90.9FM in Calgary.  (I’m both super excited and super nervous >_>)

This is their website.  I believe you can listen live on there, as well as download previous episodes.

The show is at 8pm Mountain Time (10pm Eastern)

So… um… yeah.  Just in case people want to listen or something.

*runs off screaming in nervousness*

Yus.  I will be Radio Ami tomorrow/today. D:  SO NERVOUS.

This is very awesome.

Tough love.

Mostly given to people who’ve never had soft love.

Everything is a lie

Things aren’t going to be OK.

People won’t look after you.

People don’t really believe you are incapacitated by illness.

They don’t really believe your mental illness is legitimate.

They don’t respect you to make good judgements.

They will not fulfil promises to help out.

There is no one who would put you first (and why should you expect that?).

People who tell you that if you just do X, everything will work out OK are wrong. Their lives are already so much better than yours that they can believe this lie in comfort.

You’re on your own, and you’re sick and you’re depressed and you’re in debt and no one believes in you.

Things aren’t going to be OK.

(Note: I apologise for the use of the second person in this. I don’t genuinely know about anyone else but me, but I’m not comfortable talking about myself and how bad things are so openly. I’m all alone tonight, and I just received a punch to the gut for doing what people assured me would be OK and would make things better. It was a lie. I’m sorry. This isn’t about you. I don’t know how things are for you. But the people who tell me depression is lying to me and I’m being paranoid… well, no, those people are wrong. There are no fairy godmothers for me.

Don’t worry, I’m not going to do anything stupid. I’m just alone and have no one to talk to and I needed to say this.)
