Ok but if I told you that you are not define by your disability it really means that you are so much more than that to me and that I don't see you just like "the disabled girl" but really as who you are to me.
What the fuck is this and why is it in my inbox and how did you find me
I don’t need this “you aren’t defined by your disability” bullshit because guess what, my disability is absolutely a part of who I am. That treads really close to shit like “I don’t see you as disabled” or “you’re so much more than your disability” and I’m just sitting here thinking: fuck off, stop trying to divorce myself from my disability.
This smacks of “I would prefer to pretend that you’re not disabled as that makes things more comfortable for me. Paying attention to your disability frightens me, as I generally have difficulty associating disability with personhood or with anything other than embarrassment and shame. The idea that you yourself identify as disabled never occurred to me, the idea that you might yourself feel defined by your disability as part of your whole never occurred to me, the thought of your disability being a part of your personhood and not a detractor to it never occurred to me.”
But in other news me and the boy are marathoning Elementary and oh god, I Iove it so much
I am in love with Joan Watson
I identify with this post very strongly. I hope it’s okay to say that. I wish I had something other to say than I admire you for having the strength to keep trying, and I hope it gets easier for you.
It’s completely ok to say that <3
I only put it under a readmore to save people’s dashes, really
thank you for this
i love you. as impossible as it seems, you can do this. the cycle won’t repeat forever. <3
I love you
Also, just to like, reassure people: I am safe right now. I have no plans. I am just stressed and way more upset about something dumb than I realised
Also I was literally fine like, half an hour ago. #YourBPDisShowing

I’m 21 years old and my mum still has to come and tell me to go to sleep because I am just that fucking incapable of basic executive functioning, and people ask me why I got to the point where I couldn’t see any way out of a life defined by limitations that frustrate and disgust me
Why did you do it, Charlie? Why did you take all those pills?
