  • person: "you're obsessed with your mental illness"
  • me: i know right? its like it impacts every part of my life.
  • person: "it's all in your head"
  • me: i know right? it's almost like it's a MENTAL illness.
  • person: "why do you let it affect you and stop you from being able to do things?"
  • me: i know right? it's almost like it's an ACTUAL ILLNESS

I wish teenagers/children with mental illnesses would be taken more seriously like I’ve attempted suicide three times and I am fourteen fucking years old! And everyone acts like all teenagers are sad and whatever but there’s a difference between sadness and wanting to die. My best friend was thirteen when she killed herself because no one would take her seriously even when she was covered in scars from head to toe. Everyone seems to have the idea that if you’re under 18 and suffering from a mental illness then you’re either a typical student or an attention seeker and it’s making it so hard for kids my age to reach out for help.
