I believe laughing, no matter how horrible you feel, makes everything ok for a moment.
I'm recovering from an eating disorder (2+ years behavior free!) and I'm a rape survivor. I’ve struggled with depression and anxiety. I have EDS Type III (hypermobile) and chronic fatigue. I’m real and I struggle, even if it doesn’t come across as such here.
My ask box is always open. I reply privately, unless it is anon, the latter for obvious reasons.
Help comes when the person identifies the change they want and starts to believe it can actually happen. Whether it is overcoming an impossible family situation, making a career or study change, standing up to an oppressor, gaining relief from chronic physical pain, igniting creative inspiration, feeling less alone, or beginning to value their self worth, at the root of suicidal feelings is often powerlessness to change your life – not giving up on life itself."
