This newish tumblr way of doing things is annoying with the near constant dell ads I encounter and the suggestions of more blogs I should follow in the middle of my dashboard. But I roll my eyes and scroll by it. Seriously, people…if you are responding the ads on tumblr with “fuck you” followed by…

Im ONLY that angry about Axe.

My ex got into Axe while stationed overseas. A year later he was in jail.

Correlation or causation? You decide.

GPOYW. I’m apparently starting a collection of these. They’re not misfires, they’re ghost hunting selfies—eyes closed so I don’t screw up my night vision!

Storms don’t normally bother me that much, but this one… I’d be lying if I said I didn’t have two bags packed with photos, important papers, laptop, jeans, and shoes, and that Stella’s leash wasn’t next to my keys. Just grab my insulin out of the fridge and I can get dressed in the car. 

At the same time, I’m glad that the only thing I have to be fearful of at the moment is the storm.

Restaurant owner mistakes spinach manicotti with sausage manicotti.

Gives another person at the party my dish. She takes a bite and declares it’s the wrong one.

Owner takes i away from her, HANDS ME THE FOOD THAT SHE’S ALREADY TAKEN A BITE OF, and asks me if I mind.

We’ve waited two hours for food. Do I want to wait another two hours for “clean” food?

Is this asshole really going to charge me for pre-eaten food?

Fuck.

Every introvert alive knows the exquisite pleasure of stepping from the clamor of a party into the bathroom and closing the door.

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.

THISSSS!!!!

I have now been fighting depression for thirty years. Thirty. It wears me out sometimes. Right now, I’m worn out. I keep going, but I can understand why someone wouldn’t be able to, or would choose not to. I’ve been on the edge of that space, that place where it seems the hope is gone and the options are gone you’re so, so tired that all you want is for it to stop. Just stop.

And the truth is, even when I pull back, when I find my way out of it and carry on, even when things are better, it’s always there—the memory of that space, hovering. It doesn’t completely leave me, ever. And I know that I’ll end up there again. I just hope is can keep finding my way out.
