isn’t it cool how some phobias are unquestioned and considered “normal”, like fear of heights or spiders, but mention that you have social anxiety or a fear of driving and people immediately jump to “why? what’s so scary about that? that makes no sense??????” and by it’s cool i mean it’s really fucked up because all phobias are irrational it doesn’t need an explaination that’s what makes it a pHOBIA
I don’t think anyone understands depression, not even those who suffer from it truly understand it. And how can you understand something so powerful and so out of control? It’s like trying to understand the ocean. It can be shallow or deep, or calm one second and wild the next, it’s something that cannot be contolled just like depression. It’s exhausting, it’s mentally and physically draining, it’s one of the worst things to live with because you feel like you’re living dead. You’re just going through the motions getting through day by day not knowing what state you’ll be in tomorrow, not knowing if you’ll bother waking up in the morning. Depression takes your life away, you’re always tired, moody, and empty. So lost and alone, when you hangout with your friends you aren’t really all there and you feel as though things should be better by now but they just aren’t and some days are better than others you feel a spark of happiness but it never seems to last long before you become empty again, emotionless and dead. But remember that depression is like the ocean and the ocean is unpredictable but if you ever just sit and stare at the water its quite beautiful when it wants to be.

i read this interesting fact the other day that pirates wore eye patches because they frequently transitioned from bright sunlight to darkness below deck and when they went below deck the covered eye would already be adjusted to darkness so they could immediately see really well and not have to wait for their eyes to adjust
THIS IS LEGIT THEY PROVED IT ON MYTHBUSTERS.

I know this class is at 5:00 pm, but I'm wearing pajama pants and a tank top.
