    I  didn't expect to cry but here I am

    Mum's had some health problems going as far back as I remember. It is getting worse and I just want her to be comfortable. I don't want her to worry any more than she needs to. She's experienced enough loss as it is and she lives with chronic pain. When I see a post about people refusing to wear masks especially from close people it hurts. I have already lost a parent. I never want to experience that kind of pain again. I will never fucking forget seeing my dad dead and lifeless body in a casket. I don't want to bury my mum any time soon because of selfish people. I have a dad shaped hole in my life that's never going to go away. fuck you selfish people fuck you

    I saw that thing on the news. It is quite sad but unfortunately a lot of people on Love Island secretly battle mental health issues or have a loved one that are secretly battling mental health issues. We all need to be there for each other through the hard times.
    Everyone is special in their own way. We make each other strong (we make each other strong.) We're not the same. We're different in a good way. Together's where we belong. We're all in this together. Once we know. That we are. We're all stars. And we see that. We're all in this together. And it shows. When we stand. Hand in hand. Make our dreams come true.

    I was talking with my mum about this girl in my year at school who was all set for quadruple A*/ uni offer at Cambridge levels of glory. And she was more than capable, had done the entrance tests and the interviews to prove it. And then she walked out of school with maybe BBC, perfectly respectable but perfectly ordinary grades. It wasn’t that she couldn’t have done it - she was smart enough. She had the ability. She just fluffed it. My mum says she was distracted by her boyfriend, that sometimes people don’t succeed just because they don’t have the willpower or the determination to work hard for it.

    And it it is fucking terrifying to me that you can have all this potential, all this ability, and that means nothing. It doesn’t mean you’ll get anywhere. Just because you can do something doesn’t mean you will. You know?

    And I have spent so many years of my life feeling like this. There is something that feels something like tragic about it, that I have lost this many years of my life to mental illness, that I can’t get that time back, or this second, or this second. That people say your twenties are meant to be the best days of your life and it’s all downhill from there, but at 19 I don’t have the fucking energy to get out of bed in the morning. And it is terrifying that every second of this is lost potential.

    My mum talks about a boyfriend as a distraction that makes you fluff it, means you miss out on what you could have achieved. But what if it’s mental illness? My memory is shot. There’s so much stuff my mum says I’ve told her or she’s told me and I don’t remember any of it. I’ll have a conversation that gets interrupted and guys, I kid you not, I won’t remember what we were talking about for the life of me. I have no attention span, I can’t concentrate, I have no motivation or energy for shit. 

    I have sat so so many important exams - a levels, entrance tests, finals - having spent the days and weeks running up to it staring at the fucking wall and wanting to die instead of preparing. I’ve got where I am purely by luck and it is fucking terrifying to me that one day fluke may not work in my favour. That I could have had so much ability, so much potential, and I could just fuck it up. Just like that. Because of a girlfriend I spent too much time on the phone to. Or a mental illness.

    Please hugs? Please please please. I know this is long. I am sorry. I just. Everything’s so much.

    TRIGGER WARNING

    Waiting on my blood test results. I'm not sure whether I'm supposed to contact them or not?

    Getting them done in the first place was secretly fueled by the thought of me being poisoned. It's all meaningless now since they're not doing a drug test but it could tell me why I've been feeling a bit tired. I didn't want to tell the GP about my "worries" as I didn't want her to write it on my file or get the CMHT involved or not do the blood test.

    should not have looked at facebook today. It's results day up here and honestly seeing all the people I knew from school posting about their amazing achievements was really hard for me to read when I'm sitting here with no plan for life at all atm cause im struggling so much... I mean like im proud of them all obviously they've all done so well for themselves and they deserve it so much but it reinforces the thought in my head that i can never get anywhere in life despite what i do

    im in the apathic mood: i dont feel nothing, even bad or good; someone died? like, cool, doesn't matter now. your sister isnt pregnant, even when you prayed that much to be, hm, fuck that... doesnt matter anymore. and this its terrible, because i want to self harm so bad to feel something again,

    and i can take myself into a deep level of apathy that my life its just a piece of nothing, and kill myself its very easy, so yeah, im worried

    Been looking at the mental health side of social media. Imo it’s all a bit toxic. Even just ones that don’t say triggering stuff. tbh. Cause people post about their mental health. Get likes and followers for their mental health. Isn’t that just feeding it? I might be missing something i don’t know but how can get better like that. I don’t know. Confused. Cause if they end up feeling like they don’t need that account anymore for that use anymore then the people who was following them won’t be as interested so they may fee have to most mental health related stuff. I’m confused but yeah each to their own. I’d never post how I feel on social media or make mental health account. And this is not about anyone on here this is just a general view after seeing tiktoks mental health side and then just viewing all social media

    Trying to support friends while falling apart myself is so hard. 
    Spent evening with a friend going through a lot and I feel really drained from it. I love supporting friends but when struggling myself it's a little harder

    I hate to say it but some people don’t want to get better. Wheather they know it or now. It’s not their fault actually apart of MH. I just can’t be around those people. 

    Obviously No one on here. I just need to stop looking at the mental health side of social media
