If you were officially diagnosed with something and you’re anti self-dx I’m going to have to ask you to take a step back and realize that many people don’t have enough money for diagnosis or supportive enough families or a good enough psychologist/therapist/psychiatrist. Like self diagnosis doesn’t exist for people to be “quirky and different XD” it exists because many people can’t, for any possible reason, be diagnosed. That’s it.
In the nights leading up to Episode Prompto’s release, you find yourself wide awake—thoughts kaleidoscopic in color and vivacious in their animation, a thousand fish struggling to navigate the sea of your mind. They all grasp for some semblance of purpose, hold on to some hope that they’d one day be realized, but most are swallowed whole by the harshness of reality and the unforgiving monochrome tones of your everyday life. So many expectations have been placed on your time and your feelings that you yearn for an escape you can hardly make a reality. So, as your eyelids slide to a close much later in the evening than normally allowable, you whisk yourself away. A smile tickles the corners of your lips as you slip into the limbo that exists between dreams and reality, thinking of a world where, with a mere glance in your direction, your favorite flaxen haired gunslinger would become enamored.
