Sometimes my anxiety and depression take over and I’m in a really bad spiral of self loathing and self hatred. Sometimes my mood soars so high I feel like I’m flying with butterflies and I feel love for everything and everyone.
I’m a range of emotions, and it’s a quick switch between them.
And I couldn’t be more grateful. Feeling these emotions so intensely keeps me feeling alive, it keeps me human.
One of the smartest decisions I’ve ever made was getting off medication.
"All I ever wanted was to not feel suicidal, so I traded in my meds for a guitar." - Kimya Dawson
In my case, a man I love and a pen.
