My humor zones, and other such stuff
First, I need to address, as I’m SURE you know: it’s not a weakness, it’s not silly, and it doesn’t make you worth any less. One of the best pieces of advice I’ve been getting for 15 years now is: “Illness is illness, and you shouldn’t be ashamed just because you don’t LOOK sick.”
I’m definitely in no position to say “You need to speak to your parents,” as I grew up in the same situation. Mom was more reserved and Dad was: “Suck it up and deal with it.”
As far as it goes if you really don’t want to/can’t speak with them, unfortunately counseling is generally not going to happen without parental consent. School psychiatrists/counselors can be a massive asset, however; the downside there is that if they think the situation is too extreme, they’re legally obligated to go to your parents to refer you to a psychiatrist.
I’m sure you’ve seen the masterposts for these things, but in case you haven’t:
Obviously everyone is different, but many people find SO MUCH relief from these techniques, myself included in some cases. I really feel for you being unable to go to your parents, and I feel awful that I have no direct solution, but I’d highly recommend checking out those links, and definitely talk to people for help/advice/distraction if you’d like to. Myself and just countless others on Tumblr alone are so willing to share experiences, tips, and thoughts. It’s an incredibly supportive community, and a huge asset!
i was in the car with my mum today and she stopped reversing and looks at me and was like “is that a hickey ??? On ur neck ?????? did a boy do that to u ????????? i thought u’d be alone forever on ur laptop.” the hickey was a bruise from where i accidentally shot myself in the neck with a nerf dart while trying 2 recreate a scene in star trek. my life is so pathetic even mum wants me 2 get some
stop reblogging this
imagine a vampire going “fuck it” and just taking some antihistamines before going to town on a plate of garlic bread
later on it’s wheeled into the ER with like a puffed up face and it just goes “I have been on this earth 10 thousand years but i have not lived until this day”
