I hate pretending to laugh at people’s jokes
but I already established myself as someone who laughs at things you say
and if I just stopped then a flood of questions would start drowning me with, “you’re not the same as you used to be” and “is something wrong?” and I don’t want to answer those questions
Hyperbole and a Half posted again, and everyone needs to read it because:
- If you are depressed, it will resonate with you like whoa.
- If you are not depressed, it will clarify some stereotypes about depression that need to be said. An explanation like this has been needed for a LONG time.
- If you know someone who is depressed, you’ll be better at interacting with them after reading this.
“I had so very few feelings, and everyone else had so many, and it felt like they were having all of them in front of me at once.”
that struck a chord
I hate having to verbally tell my mom when I don’t want to talk or when she shouldn’t say passive aggressive things to me or when I’m having a generally dark day and don’t want to small talk.
And it’s not just her, it’s literally everyone and I don’t want to talk to anyone. I just want to be left to myself.
The only problem is I don’t know what I would do to myself if left to my own devices.
is it bad that i only have like two friends I would genuinely be sad about not talking to anymore
It’s actually funny because I kind of don’t care that much. I’ve just been kind of numb
Also my social anxiety and depression has been getting to me for the past week so that’s awesome too
