oh the lameness

I will rearrange the stars
Pull ‘em down to where you are
I promise, I’ll do better
With every heartbeat I have left
I’ll defend your every breath
I promise I’ll do better
I will soften every edge
Hold the world to its best
I promise I’ll do better
With every heartbeat I have left
I’ll defend your every breath
(I’ll do better)

i wanted to make a little appreciation post for all the avpd folks on here, so here’s to all the avoidants who:

  • spend hours or days working up the nerve to make that phone call
  • still share things with your friends even though everything in your body is screaming at you to stop
  • don’t text back for days or weeks at a time because it’s safer to let them wait than to humiliate yourself
  • can’t do anything in public comfortably, not even read, look at your phone, etc
  • stress sweat all the damn time
  • spend 40 minutes reading and rereading a post to make sure you didn’t accidentally say something stupid
  • have to use anger, snark, etc, to fuel yourself when you want to say something
  • are unfairly labeled as weak and timid because of you disorder

this doesn’t really even begin to encompass it, but i see you and i believe in you.

Many think that Riza is the kind of person who hides the fact that she is sick so she can keep working, and while that may be true, Roy actually does this far more often.

Riza can always tell when he’s pretending to be fine when he really isn’t and she has a few ways of getting him to go home and rest. She’s the only one he’ll listen to about the matter.
