i'm going to need months to recover

Alfred as a doctor
  • Francis: Is Arthur going to be okay? Oh, please tell me my darling is okay!
  • Alfred: I'm sorry, but we lost him.
  • Francis: *Cries*
  • Matthew, running up: Doctor, we found patient Kirkland.
  • Alfred: Oh, that's good. Anyway, the surgery was a complete success! He'll just need a week or so to recover, and will be good as new by the end of the month. If you have any questions, let me know.

sometimes I feel like no one cares about me if I'm not broken. I'm trying so hard to be someone people could adore but it feels like if I'm not screaming for help, I must be fine and therefore not needing anyone at all

let me tell you a story that may or may not help you: a couple months ago, i felt exactly like this. i went through a very hard break up last year and after months of being broken, i was finally able to go full days without crying. i was finally recovering. that’s what i wanted, right? who wouldn’t want to heal?

but in a way, i missed being broken. i missed the attention. i missed the “if you need me, i’m here”s. i felt like i needed to be broken for anyone to care. instead of feeling sad, i started feeling numb. and in a way, it felt worse, because this time, i didn’t have a reason to be feeling that way. and no one cared anymore. why should they? nothing was wrong. i wasn’t mourning anymore. my break up was many months before that point. i was getting the help i needed. i was in therapy and taking medication and doing better in school.

but i was still struggling and i felt like no one was recognizing my efforts. so i started screaming for help. i stopped going to therapy. i irrationally and abruptly stopped taking my medication. i started making risky decisions. i started telling people i wanted to die. i starting getting drunk and crying in bars to anyone who would listen. i started running off in the middle of conversations when people made me upset, trying to force them to chase after me. i started cutting myself, as many times in a row as i could take. i did everything i could to try to make people care, but in the end, i just scared them off. in the end, i was acting off the wall and crazy and i’m still embarrassed by my words and actions. i’m still embarrassed of my scars, because every time i look at them, i see a girl who would have destroyed herself to make someone care. i see desperation. i see “looking for attention.”

but i realized that you shouldn’t have to ask people to care. i don’t have any hard feelings towards the people i scared off, but are they in my life anymore? no. because if you are trying to force the people in your life to care, you are surrounding yourself with people who are all wrong for you. the right people will not be too wrapped up in their own agendas to even ask you how you are, no matter how good you may seem or if you have a reason to be upset or not. the right people will make you feel valued and wanted. the right people will make you want to get better, not worse. i am very thankful to say i have found strength in the uplifting people that surround me today and i have faith that you will find people who give you strength as well.

i care about you. whether you’re broken or not broken, you don’t have to scream to make me do so, i just do. if you ever want to reach out to me off anon about anything, no matter how stupid you may think it is, i encourage you to do so. because i never want you to get to the point where you are so tired of screaming, you begin to destroy yourself.

take care. <3

-3 years anon- okay that's wild! I knew about Zayn (it was literally everywhere, impossible to miss) and it was just a few months after I left and I was still on the fence about leaving for good and that was the final straw. I always assumed the boys broke up because that's what everyone was saying you know. As for the father thing, I'm still speechless. Of course much more for Louis because it's just such an impossible thing in my mind, Louis getting a girl pregnant. I hate that I want to -

-look this up. I can’t believe that 35 months after I left the fandom I’m about to ask this but do you have some links about it? About why you think it’s fake. I literally know nothing, I just saw the pictures on Louis’ Instagram (and Liam’s) a few hours ago and I needed some time to recover from the shock

oh dear, here we go! this is my ‘babygate’ tag (as we call it) with masterposts and other poignant posts (definitely check this one out, it’s an introduction for newbies + the original post doesn’t have clickable links but it’s more thorough than my reblog). then i also have a ‘the baby is fake’ tag which are chronological posts of occurences as they happened, but you would need to click yourself through 2+ years worth of posts, so maybe stick to the masterposts for now.

it’s pretty overwhelming, so take your time! i totally get that you thought they broke up by the way. but the boys themselves are very consistent in saying it’s a hiatus and they will get back together at some point because they love the band and would “never be as successful as solo artists” (niall). also “it’d be stupid not to” (also niall lol).

im just amazed wth how well niall and liam are doing. and with them you know its moslty gp, people who werent fans of 1d before this, who genuinely enjoy their songs cause they dont have as big fanbases as louis and Harry and there are never campaings done to stream and buy their songs. its truly amazing. especially for liam who i feel like a lot of people underestimated. im so proud.

I’m not sure about their fanbases, especially when it comes to Niall, but yes yes yes! What’s truly working and producing amazing results with them is the big chunks of new audience they’ve been able to intrigue, convince and win over. To have a song out for so long and still so high in numerous charts is the hugest confirmation they could ask for and the biggest reward. I think both of them were highly underestimated. I, for one, had heard very good things about Liam’s upcoming music months ago, but I wasn’t ready for Niall. He literally blew me away and the more I see him perform live, the prouder I get (after a first shocking moment of ??? what happened to this kid, I need time to recover). I think we should really really be in awe of them and never forget that very rarely former boybanders perform ALL so well in the charts when they go for solo careers (temporarily or indefinitely).

I’m weeping. 

Magnus. FUCKING MAGNUS. THROWS A PARTY WITH AN ICE SCULPTURE, WITH GOLD PIECES IN THE SANGRIA, AND WITH FUCKING JELL-O SHOTS. There is a 9-year-old present. AND his boyfriend who he is barely dating is going to have his mother there. 

Why is is so much? Alec and Magnus, the most extra couple to ever date.

I have bulimia. I account my binging to me wanting/needing to numb. I go through so much emotional and physical pain each time I binge and purge. I want to recover more than anything. My life is being taken from me everyday with this disorder. I'm about to enter treatment for a third time in the past 2 years. I'm incredibly certain that I want recovery, but each time after a few months out of treatment, I've relapsed. It's killing my soul slowly. What is your take on eating disorder recovery?
