Social Media Is Redefining 'Depression'
Before you make that cut, please keep in mind that you will find the pain release and blood strangely addictive. It controls you. But you will. If you think you can limit the cuts to just one area of your body, you better think again.
Even if you have been the most honest person to ever live, you will lie to your friends, family members, everyone around you who you care about.
Be prepared to become your own worst enemy. Wait for the 10 cuts to turn into 20 then 50 then Your entire life will begin to revolve around your addiction. And then. You pray and hope that the bleeding will stop. The better you get at treating your wounds, the worse they become.
But at the same time. Be prepared to spend even more money on an entire new wardrobe. Long sleeved shirts, hoodies, long pants, boots, bracelets, wristbands. The list goes on forever. Hoping, praying that they will be like you. Hiding it with everything and looking and hoping that someone will have an exposed cut and be able to help them and relate. A key, safety pin, a needle, a paperclip, even a pencil.
Everything around you will become a weapon. Say goodbye to all of the things you took for granted. Shorts, sandals, tank tops, swimming in the summer, going to the beach.
All of these things will be a far off memory. I hope you like itching and scratching non stop. You will itch and itch and itch. You will become an expert on your body as you carefully destroy it, taking it apart piece by piece. You will dream of cutting, dreaming of getting caught. It will haunt you day and night, in your dreams and when you are awake. Cutting will take over your life.

Many people have been reaching out to me, telling me that my little comics inspired hope in them. Anxiety and depression are tough things to be dealing with, but, yeah, sometimes even the smallest things can keep us from drowning. For me such small things are series and fandoms that grow around them. There are a lot of reasons to recommend it: beautiful aesthetics, engaging storylines, breath-taking soundtrack, non-stereotypical POC and LGBT representation, strong female characters and exciting humour — all parts of it.
But to me it was recommended as a very hopeful series, and I recommend it to you as such. So if you are feeling down or struggle to find hope or love British characters or even simply have nothing else to watch — please, give this series a go. Save it. Some of you may have noticed that I was kind of absent since September. I feel like I owe you an explanation.
