What if mermaids live really long - and the longer they live, the bigger they grow?
A bit late to the party, but here’s my contribution to the Catalog of Merfolk. I didn’t have nearly as much time to finish this as I wanted, but I have to be up in 5 hours so this will have to do!
I’m not trying to play favorites or anything, and have been avoiding reblogging individual entries to be fair to everyone, but this entry came in late and it’s really cool and you should look at it.
literally everything (via casualfacestroking)
how 2 make people feel better ft. dog
anyway thank you friends for contributing to today’s session of “what the fuck are psychologists/psychiatrists even on about” i’m going to drag myself to bed, dog kisses to all
I was really relieved when somebody finally told me I had bipolar! because it meant I could take working meds! and there was a reason I was feeling so shitty.
yeah exactly (i saw your other reply earlier too sorry i didn’t respond i was between classes), the worst is now he’s babbled about that ofc my classmates are going to believe him and when i try to point out that at least from the people i know it’s not all woe and gloom they just go ‘but you guys are just special’ and im here headdesking
its actually WORSE for me when i can tell they’re being cage-y bc How Do We Break The News, which happens w/ my docs.. “you might be a little bipolar, but that doesn’t mean you’re crazy!!!” ok but am i bc if i am that would be a relief. like???
yea hh that sounds like mine, who keeps making vaguely concerned faces when i talk to him and ‘imma give u meds its not a Bad Thing’ but refuses to give me a name for what it is? do doctors even realize how annoying that shit is i dont think so and i dont understand.
(also prof specifically used bipolar disorder as a Bad Thing, as in “you wouldn’t want to be told you’re gonna have to live the rest of your life w that would you” and im sitting here like ‘well uh technically if you have to tell me about it odds are its been fuckin me up for a while and i think being able to put a name on it is good??’ fucking mental health professionals i stg)
nawwww it wasn’t dismissive, i was just offering experience! sorry, i do tend to butt in.
noo don’t be sorry it’s cool i appreciate the input! just wanted to check since it’s hard to get tone and stuff with text-only and i don’t want to hurt anyone c:
i def. grieved when i was diagnosed as borderline but that was partially bc i felt (correctly!) that it was the wrong diagnosis
sorry if that comment was dismissive then? i did think about wrong dxs after i made it, bc i’ve seen that happen too and the reaction does seem a lot less good. idk it’s a weird subject for me and the way they talk about it in class is so overwhelmingly negative? when i don’t feel its always the case. sometimes yes but not all the time? but yeah sorry if that came off wrong it wasn’t the intent
