in the wake of Robin Williams death there’s been a lot of talk about depression being a disease and everyone is posting hotline numbers and “I wish he would have told someone” “he was so loved.” Which is phenomenal. But a lot of these people are the same people I’ve gone to - multiple times - trying to talk about my depression / being bipolar and have been vehemently denied. All these people (friends?) posting about supporting people with depression but when it’s right in front of them they do nothing. It’s bullshit. Posting a number, pretending to support someone because they’re a celebrity but not your friend? Why is Robin Williams worth your time but I’m not?
"hey I’ve called you 6 times where are you?"
"I’m sorry to hear that. I wish you were here"
"Why are you suddenly reappearing?"
"I don’t know, I just always miss you I guess"
taking a break from drinking— at least for a little bit. these pounding sleepless mornings are atrocious
