Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Mental Illness, or, how a show about killing vampires made me feel okay with the world. Words by Natasha.
Re: "don't date a junkie unless you plan to become one yourself." Our experiences are so different. I dated this girl for two years when I was really unstable and a hardcore opiate user and she never even tried opiates. We did E together occasionally and she wanted to try some coke but she never became an addict. However, she was supplying my habit and although I loved her and still do, I felt had to break up with her because I didn't want to ruin her life with my insanity.
