Don’t care


I'm overwhelmed. No one seems to understand not give a rats tail. Even my mother doesn't get off. She always manages r to make it about her. And since she's gone through some experirces, it sound be a quick fix. The only thing that's a quick fix, is for me to grasp my keys and get the hell out of there. I've said numerous times, III just need you to listen. No feedback is necessary.

And to whomever said it, an hour isn't enough. I need my needs adjusted. I feel myself shutting down. I've never been this fast gone before. Sometimes I wish I could snap my fingers and vanish... Well, we know that's not going to help.

Photo? Just imagine a woman running down the street screaming her head off

If it makes you feel better, my parents are the last people I would talk with about mental health. Some people just don't understand and it's too frustrating and hurtful to attempt to make them understand. People who haven't experienced depression firsthand often don't understand how complex it is. Still, I totally understand how frustrating it is when someone tells you to "get over it" or find a "quick fix". There might be good intentions behind their words but, it totally misses the point. Try to only talk to those that you know react in a compassionate way. Finding a therapist could be helpful.

Btw, it's good that you recognize that your mother has had difficult experiences that she's overcome, BUT that doesn't mean you should invalidate your own struggles with depression.

Do you have a hobby or go to the gym or binge watch something that can help you to reduce the stress?
