I’m grumpy and filled with food I didn’t like but had to eat out of courtesy
perfect time to shave all of my body hair
really unnecessary and degrading fanservice of your favorite character
Could you explain the whole "i don’t really have depression, i’m actually just a lazy piece of shit" = you've got depression, thing? It rang a bell for me and I'd like to know what you meant. Thanks :)
one of the most insidious things about depression is it doesn’t ‘feel’ like depression. even when you have it, you know you have it, you’ve been diagnosed—you still find yourself thinking, no, nope, this isn’t it, can’t be. it’s like the mental illness equivalent of that knight in monty python that keeps going ‘it’s a flesh wound! i’m fine, really! this is just a scratch, i’ll be up in a moment!’ even after all his limbs have been hacked off and he’s lying there helpless.
one of the most common narratives around it is that no one realizes they have depression until they start checking off what they consider to be normal aspects of their lives—and personal character flaws— against the checklist for depression symptoms. really key symptoms include:
- lack of motivation
- constant tiredness, even exhaustion
- finding no pleasure or satisfaction in activities they used to like, or that they know should feel good
- not seeing the point of doing anything
- increased and even unmanageable anxiety and fearfulness
any one of these symptoms drains away your ability to do work, cope with setbacks, overcome difficulties, or stop procrastinating. multiple symptoms create a pretty perfect storm of intertia and anxious self-loathing. you stop doing anything because it’s hard to get going, unpleasant while you’re at it, and afterwards there’s no reward. why bother, right? and when you’re always tired you get conservative of what little energy you can manage, and when you only feel emotions on the ‘empty to miserable’ spectrum you get really aversive to making mistakes. the whole mess very quickly and very insidiously loads every single thing in your life with toxic emotional baggage.
and then someone says to you— or you say to yourself, ‘stop being lazy’. and that haunts you forever. because you’re lazy! the work is so easy. everyone else does it. everyone but you, you lazy asshole, lying around all day not doing this totally easy thing that you should be able to but aren’t. you don’t have depression! of course not. mental illness is for victims, is for blameless innocent people who can’t be blamed for being so understandably sick. but you can be blamed. you have a character flaw, and it’s getting worse by the minute.
and that is how people who have been diagnosed, who have been medicated, who have been through therapy, can still spend all day hiding in bed and chewing themselves up over their failure to just somehow magically be a good, healthy, useful person, instead of treating themselves to a sick day and saying ‘yup! it’s depression. i need to be kind to myself.’
This is painfully accurate about me.
It’s amazing how everyone BUT the characters and creator of YGO call Bakura ‘Ryou’
I understand that’s his first name
and I understand that people tend to assume that the other Bakura should be called Bakura, too, since the cast calls him that
that doesn’t stop people from calling Yuugi by his name and his other self by basically ‘other’ or ‘the dark one’ while the characters in the series refer to them by the same name
I don’t get it
I don’t want to get it
I just flinch then move on
I am totally guilty of this, though in my case it’s because I like that differentiation between the two I guess? I actually avoid using “Yami Yuugi” generally as well and just prefer to call him Atem, even though he didn’t know his name until the story was pretty much over and everyone called him Yuugi/Yami Yuugi. Which… some people have also gotten annoyed at me for calling him Atem x:
So I guess in my case it’s just because I like for everyone to have their own name?
Ryou and Bakura is faster to type than Ryou Bakura and Yami Bakura.
But you don’t have to type out Ryou Bakura, you could just do ‘Bakura’, which is kind of what all of his friends call him (Takahashi, too)
And people who get annoyed with you calling the other Yuugi ‘Atem’ maybe should actually watch/read YGO
And for everyone to have their own name?
they already do
that’s kind of how it is already, so if it’s just out of short hand (which again, I disagree with but it’s your decision) then fine
I’m not telling people to stop, because I know they won’t, I’m just saying it’s one of my pet peeves and I will continue get my slight irritation over this honestly unimportant detail
"All media should start having trigger warnings for graphic or upsetting content."
