Don't Call Me Jim
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.

I know this is late but I was in the hospital and dealing with my own suicidality when Robin Williams died. One of the hardest things for me to deal with about my chronic mental health issues (besides my symptoms) is that if I finally die because of them, almost nobody will remember me for my fight. No one will remember me for somehow managing to live past 16; 20; 22; 25. Instead I’ll be remembered for failing to live longer than I did. I can’t think of any other chronic high-fatality illness in which people memorialize your death as a failure instead of a life-long struggle.

I was looking through the notes for your post about dating a white girl and I will just never get over that stupid fucking argument ppl always use 'sO WHEN A WHITE PERSON DOES SOMETHING LIKE THIS-' excuse me but when whites who say they aren't attracted to a group of ppl it's bc they find them ugly based on European beauty standards. when POC say they aren't attracted to whites it's bc the systematic oppression, ignorance, and violence associated with them overshadows any beauty they may have.

EX-FUCKING-ACTLY.

It’s totally acceptable when a white person says “Oh I don’t like Black men, i’m not racist it’s just because *racist stereotype, colorist comment, etc.*” but me saying that I don’t want to be with a white person is suddenly equated to the KKK.

When the crackers kick up like this, it really reminds me why I started this blog. To be so damn self absorbed is a true feat.
