Anonymity

by fitzgerald

I guess places like this are why people love anonymous Internet posting so much.

If we met in person, I doubt we’d be friends. I doubt I’d get the lovely support I have been the last few days.

I might be one of the people you felt excluded,  or trodden down by.

My friends are the ones with the bright smiles and pretty hair. My family loves and supports me. I got my chance to get an education, and was successful at it. I was never abused. I’ve never been dragged through the gutter.

People say I’m funny, and sweet, maybe too sarcastic sometimes. They think I’m smart and caring, and my parents should be so proud.

Maybe this would’ve been easier if I were more fucked up.

We aren’t so different you and I.
“My family loves and supports me. I got my chance to get an education, and was successful at it. I was never abused. I’ve never been dragged through the gutter.”
This is definitely me. I graduated high school with honors.
“They think I’m smart and caring.”
How I was before, how I’m perceived now, because that the person that I was known as.
I messed up in college and everything spiraled downhill from there.
I will tell you this though.
It doesn’t matter how successful you are, how well off you are. Depression isn’t picky. It affects everyone and anyone, in one way or another.
Do you feel like you’re too “normal” to be a part of this community? I do a lot of the time. I was never abused or anything like that. I was always encouraged to pursue the things I wanted to pursue. Things changed though. Depression hit and now, I’m just here.
So please, don’t think that just because you aren’t “more fucked up”, you shouldn’t be depressed, or anxious, or suicidal, or whatever the case may be.
Here’s my email. Anytime you wanna talk, just message me.

Thanks. Sometimes I read other people talking about how awful their families are, sexual abuse, rejection, failing school or financial troubles, etc. And I just wonder if they had my life, would they make more of it than I did? I’m sad to think that if they had a better shot they might be happy.

God I agree with this.
My familys been complaining after I was sent to the E.R. that they’ve given me everything, that I have no problems, that I am FINE.
But, you know what?
No.
No I am not fine.
