Did you ever?
Depression and anxiety and other mental afflictions may be overcome or managed, we’re told, but self-loathing? Does that ever go away? This totalizing regret?
How do you even separate the pain of life circumstances and the tormenting energetic behavior (or lack thereof) of illness?
I “came out” publicly as a depressive more than a year ago thanks to some kind of misguided martyr-ific impulse. The decision has done me absolutely no good. Just one minor negative is the fact that this blog is no longer truly anonymous. However, I’m desperate for a safe forum to vent some of these feelings and seek for help from others.
Where do you find community online?
And what about that self loathing? What about that?
