Anonymous said: what the hell is even going on here, why are you posting random pictures of yourself crying on social media with no explanation? not trying to be rude, genuinely curious...

We all have our weaknesses, and sharing them is important.

I have struggled with depression and anxiety since I was a kid. I was diagnosed with ADD at the age of 6 in 1991, because it was a pervasive enough issue throughout my home life and school life, that something had to be done. Before you get all up in arms about ADHD, I wasn’t the hyper, unruly, undisciplined child, I was diagnosed as Primarily Inattentive type of ADHD (the tired, and spacey kind, with no “H”, which is marked levels of hyperactivity.) The comorbidity rate between Attention Deficit Disorders and a second psychological disorder is between 60-80%.

It’s a chicken vs the egg type conundrum too…the overlap in what causes both ADD and depression issues (as far as chemically,) are largely due to a shortage of norepinephrine and serotonin, which along with their other functions, help maintain focus.

I’m actively treating the ADD, and now, I need to focus on the depression and anxiety, and what’s causing that…because, unlike some depression and anxiety displayed in ADHD patients that stem from low levels of self esteem incurred from hearing they are “lazy” or “stupid” or “slow” or “weird” from nearly everyone in their lives at one point or another, or from not being able to keep their shit together, (which I’ve experienced in the past, especially, before I found the correct dosage.)

THIS is different. I have my shit together. This is far more pervasive.

Me writing about this publicly, and posting a photo of how I feel right now, hopefully, helps bring recognition to the fact that disorders like these can occur anywhere, in anyone.

Ideally, by not being ashamed to talk about mental illness and mood disorders and their wide ranging, all encompassing effects on the people who are afflicted with them, posts like these will help make the fancy clinical terms for those disorders more human by putting a face to them.

Reducing the stigmatization of those living with mental illness and mood disorders is IMPERATIVE if we plan to move forward as a more fully functioning and healthy society.


My anxiety levels, despite working out, and despite my efforts to curb them have been crippling me.

This has been ongoing for months, but I’m starting some sort of counseling as soon as I possibly can. I just have to wait until Monday to schedule something.
I cannot function like this for much longer.
