suicide and self harm and eating disorder tw

anonymous asked:

Hey! I was wondering if you could recommend any lgbtq+ books where the mc also deals with a mental illness?

Definitely! Some great YAs that do:

(Those are all from this post, for ease of finding later:

And since that post, I’d also add 10 Things I Can See From Here by Carrie Mac, which has a lesbian protag and deals with severe anxiety; Vanished by E.E. Cooper, which has a bi protag who has OCD; and the upcoming (July 11) The Art of Starving by Sam J. Miller is another good one with a (gay) anorexic protag.

Older than YA, Strong Signal and Hard Wired by Santino Hassell and Megan Erickson are both great m/m Romances with protags who have anxiety disorders, and Far From Home by Lorelie Brown is f/f with a main character who has an eating disorder. Black Iris by Elliot Wake w/a Leah Raeder has a bi protag (she IDs as queer) with bipolar disorder, and the love interest is also bi and has Borderline Personality Disorder, IIRC.

Hope something in there helps, but if you’re looking for a mental illness or ID I didn’t mention, feel free to hit me up again!

Hello! I was wondering if you have any phanfictions where one of them is bulimic? I checked through your ed masterlist but there only seems to be ones about anorexia. Sorry to bother you!

Facing Problems (wattpad) - (tw) Dan and Phil both have problems, they need help and seem to find each other just in time, but will they be able to overcome them together before it’s too late? Contains: Phan, Kickthestickz, self harm, eating disorders including anorexia and bulimia, depression and possible suicidal thoughts etc*  May be TRIGGERING!

Save Me - Phil’s mum finds out he’s bulimic so she takes him to a mental hospital. He hates it at first, but quickly makes friends with two other patients, PJ and Chris. Another boy, Dan, joins the group, but he’s really quiet and reluctant to share anything as to why he’s there. Phil gets him to open up eventually, but the things he finds out about Dan are not as simple as Phil thought they’d be.

Triggers/Warnings: ulimia, bipolar disorder, rape, depression, suicide attempt, and self-harm

Someday - (tw) “Everyone had a link with their soulmates, some could hear some of their partners thoughts, some had a tattoo that would appear with their partners name; for me, I knew when they got sick.” For a while Phil has thought that his soulmate might have an eating disorder and doesn’t expect to meet him in the restaurant where he works.

Summary: Dan Howell is a liar and a sneak, but that could all change when he meets someone different at a coffee shop in the early hours of the morning.
