Okay so I was playing Tokyo Ghoul Carnaval and I got this Quinque

I find it strange because it reminds me of Tsukiyama’s Kagune

HOLY SH*T DON’T TELL ME! 

IS TSUKIYAMA GONNA DIE IN TOKYO GHOUL:RE AND BECOME A QUINQUE?!

CUZ CURRENTLY THE CCG IS INVESTIGATING ROSEWALD AND IT WILL LEAD THEM TO THE TSUKIYAMA FAMILY AND THEY’LL POSSIBLY DESTROY AND KILL EVERYBODY 

Cuz Chie predicted:

No.  That is not, in fact, how it works.  It’s pretty much the opposite.

Because apparently YET AGAIN some folks have it in their heads that what happens “on the Internet” or “on Tumblr” more specifically is that someone describes a symptom of mental illness and anyone who has experienced anything vaguely similar jumps on the bandwagon, leading to both of the following:

Thing One) people who do not have Real Mental Illnesses™ trying to get their “fake triggers” and otherwise lazy desires to not deal with The Real World™ accommodated.

Thing Two) people with Real Mental Illnesses™ not Seeking Professional Help™ because Tumblr has made them think that a serious mental illness symptom is just a normal thing that happens to people.

My experience has been, repeatedly, the opposite of this.  Specifically, someone who has had some sort of serious mental health difficulty posts about it and someone else reads it and realizes “oh, really, that’s actually a thing that is supposed to be worthy of treatment, and not just something that my weak-willed arse needs to suck up and deal with??”

I have multiple friends whose lives were quite possibly saved by timely exposure to Allie Brosh’s brilliant “Adventures in Depression” because it was the first description of depression that they could relate to well enough as serious treatment-worthy clinical depression even though suicidal ideation was a “normal” part of their thought processes.

I have one friend who was experiencing postpartum psychosis and didn’t realize it, dismissing her symptoms as “another weird new mom thing that nobody warned me about” until someone else described HER experience with postpartum psychosis clearly enough to prompt the question of, “Wait, it isn’t normal to hear my baby crying when the baby’s at home and I’m not, or vice-versa?”  (NO.  EMPHATICALLY NO.  IT IS NOT.)

I have friends who have gotten help for ADHD (and I have done so myself) after exposure to Sari Solden’s checklist that shows how ADHD is often different for girls and women.  Other friends who have gotten help for PTSD after realizing that “trauma” includes more than war and sexual abuse.

So, um, if people could stop with the idea that there is a big contingent of mental illness “fakers” out there who are making it hard for those who are Worthy Of Diagnosis to get diagnosed, that’d be great.
