I struggle with generalized anxiety disorder, clinical depression, and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
Man, those sound ridiculous when you use the real/full names.
But I’d really love to meet & befriend some tumblr people who struggle with the same things.
It’s important to say that my diseases, my disorders, my mental illnesses - whatever bleak-sounding thing you want to call them - don’t define me. None of my struggles define me. I am bigger than them, I am stronger than them, I’m on my way to becoming the person I want to be in (very joyful) spite of them.
At the same time, these things - and the worry and sadness and frustration they bring - are a part of my mind and a part of my life. I really want to meet and talk to other people who wrestle with them too. I want us to encourage each other and help each other and recommend things to each other.
I’m tagging this post like crazy in the hopes of finding people like that. If you want that too, would you reblog or leave a message in my ask? And if you have a friend who you know might understand or be interested, would you pass this along to them?
Is not an Attention Deficit
Rather its an ADD- on to my life.
My “A.D.D.” Is not something you can fix with a fucking capsule and bottle
Rather it’s what breaks me free and shows me how life can be.
My “A.D.D.” Is not a condition doctors need to tell the parents they should be fear.
Rather, it’s proof that monsters and creativity can combine and make something great.
My “A.D.D.” Is not something that makes me an outcast in the picture.
Rather, it casts out those who don’t belong in the picture.
My “A.D.D.” Is not me being a 10-year old afraid of the dark.
Rather, it’s me being a young man, unafraid of the light.
My “A.D.D.” Is not a reality Rather, it’s proof that you’re quick to judge what you see.
……. I know my role, and I play it well. Playing the idiot is a role I enjoy,simply because you have so much room to say anything.
Therefore, it’s a role, and not who I really am. It’s my art of deception, tricking the world into thinking the opposite of what’s real.
