To anyone struggling with their mental health:

-You do not need to be sicker to get help.
- You do not need to self harm or starve yourself to ‘prove’ that you’re struggling.
- You deserve help, you are worth it.

If you’re struggling, you deserve to get help. No ifs. No buts!

pointless BBC!Sherlock comment

Usually I prefer to spread good humor and cheer, and I have really, really tried to see the good in it, but screw it, I am officially going to pretend series 3 never happened.*  The sheer awfulness hurts too much.

*Except for the pretty Mind Palace sequence, which was some cool filmmaking.

I don't know if you remember, but I tried to reach out to you a couple of months ago on tumblr when you post something really personal about depression and you never got back(which I understand.) Anyhoo, how are you doing now? Or just how are you doing period?

Hello, Super Thoughtful Anon!  I have been trying to think of an Extremely Clever And Amusing response to this for a few days, but I think instead I’ll just go with the truth.

First off, I absolutely read and appreciate any and all notes I get, so I am 99.9% sure I did get your previous comment (esp. if it’s the one I think it is) and probably was just embarrassed/unsure how to respond.  So THANK YOU for reaching out, because it does mean a lot to me.  ♥

To answer in brief:  You know, I really don’t think I’m doing so well right now.  I can pinpoint a few specific reasons for this, and otherwise it’s just the usual daily battle.  I know we’ve all heard it 6.982 times on Tumblr, but depression really is a disease, and while I usually feel like I’m more or less holding my own against it, that hasn’t really been the case of late, mostly because I’m not taking good care of myself on multiple levels.

HOWEVER!  I am aware of the problem and am absolutely committed to doing what I need to do to feel better.  It’s just going to take some time. 

And at least 200 pictures of classy British actors doing classy British things.  <.< >.>

This has always been one of my favorite quotes. It gives me hope that one day if I keep at it the gap will continue to grow smaller.

I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. If you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good.
