depression is when you don’t really care about anything
anxiety is when you care too much about everything
and having both is just like whatHaving both is staying in bed because you don’t want to go to school and then panicking because you don’t want to fail. Having both is wanting to go see your friends so you don’t lose them all, then staying home in bed because you don’t want to make the effort. Having both is insanely hard and sucks to deal with.
I've experienced treatment as a BPD patient and it was hell. I didn't even have BPD. I was wrongly diagnosed. I really really wish mental health professionals were more understanding whn it comes to BPD patients.
Thank you for sharing this with me. Was it bipolar and bpd that had their diagnoses often mixed up? I’m sorry you had to go through such a shitty treatment process. Hope you are doing better now.
I wish mental health professionals treated each patient as an individual PERSON, rather than a (textbook) case or just “something to do for my career”. I’ve had many therapists and doctors who just label things by the textbook, when mental illness is much more complex than that.
That new friend(?) I kinda was talking about last week … She hasn’t turned up to any of the classes this week and I’m worried.
I still haven’t made any other friends and it looks like people have settled in some sort of group-type thing already.
Not helping my anxiety.
the worst way for friendships to end is for literally nothing to go wrong, you just stop talking. they stop messaging you to see how youre doing and you get sick of being the first one to initiate conversation so you just let the friendship go and wonder how that person is doing and never hear from them again
