I’ve been through a lot of shit in my life but these past 8 months have by far been the hardest. One minute I was getting straight A’s and A*’s in my GCSE’s and struggling but being able to manage and stay afloat and then almost overnight my eating disorder was the worst it’d ever been and self harm had spiralled and I’d quit my job and dropped two A Levels and didn’t care about anyone or anything other than hurting myself but after two overdoses and lil hospital visits later I’m still here and I’m fighting harder than ever and I’m sitting my exams so at this rate even if I get D’s I don’t care because three months ago if you’d told me that I’d still be here to sit my exams I probably would’ve laughed in your face. Sure if I hadn’t been through all this crap this year I probably would get better grades but I have been through it and rather than dwelling on how much more I could’ve done I should be celebrating the things I did do which is choose recovery and to stay alive and I wouldn’t have the option to sit my exams at all if I didn’t do that. I’m doing the best I can with the situation I’m in.
do you know of any ya dystopias with queer/trans protagonists?
