I suffer from depression and anxiety and for years I felt like I couldn't get help and I had to just tough it out because therapy and medication were for crazy people. I go to counselling now and I'm on medication, it really helps to see people like you and other authors and people in the public eye talk openly about mental illness, because I know that if it had been happening back when I was first dealing with this stuff as a preteen, I would have gotten help so much sooner.
I like you. 回答を送信:
I definitely would have benefited from therapy when I was younger, if for no reason other than to know that what I had was a common and even textbook thing. It’s like if you got a cold one day, and nobody had ever told you what a cold was, and nobody ever let the world see that they had a cold, you would freak out. You would be thinking “why is my nose leaking? why are my eyes watering? why can’t I smell things?” But you do know what a cold is, and that millions of people get them, and some things that will help, so that eases your mind.
But mental illness is this thing that millions of people deal with, but don’t talk about, and it’s stigmatized. So when a young person experiences it, they easily believe they are the only ones ever to feel this way. I actually learned what my OCD was by watching a daytime talk show that featured people who suffered from it, and I remember being so relieved that this was a real thing that people who were otherwise totally normal and sane dealt with, and that it was all textbook and there were things I could do and people I could talk to.
What happens to cats in zero gravity ? more educational gifs«
Many people harm or kill pet cats (and other animals) by dropping them to “see if they land on their feet”. Do not try this. Even if they land safely it’s very stressful and scary for the cat (imagine a giant picking you up and dropping you upside down) and can be seriously harmful or even deadly. (Tip: cats do not actually have nine lives. Not all cats can walk away unharmed from being dropped.) In any case, it is just needlessly cruel. Look at how freaked out those cats look. And the humans laugh and high-five.
Please don’t condone this. Don’t reblog this image. Most of all, don’t harm animals just for your own shits and giggles.
(The work exhibited was held at the gallery cat cho, Utagawa Kuniyoshi Tribute Exhibition in remembrance of Mr. Kuniyoshi who was a cat lover in Edo of Chakichaki.
It is just as it is, but I drew the Edo cat.)
